2018 Symposium

Epilepsy Research Takes Centre Stage

Scientists, clinicians and community members came together at the annual Taylor Symposium on November 19. The lineup included a London epilepsy update, a keynote presentation by Dr. Istvan Mody, the 2018 J. Allyn Taylor International Prize in Medicine recipient, and a panel discussion hosted by Avis Favaro, medical specialist with CTV National News.

During the panel, patient and advocate Karen Fisher spoke about her experience living with epilepsy. Fisher lived with undiagnosed seizures for 30 years before a London, Ontario team led by neurosurgeon Dr. David Steven gave her back her independence, career and ability to drive. "My message to patients is to never give up," she said.
