Women & Wellness Event

January 20 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm



This event will give women living with epilepsy and their female caretakers, siblings, and friends a chance to focus on self-care and relaxation. The event will include chair massages and other spa treatments, a DIY craft, and more. Attendees will hear from local epilepsy experts on a variety of topics relating to women and epilepsy. Attendees will also get to participate in a Question and Answer session and view exhibits from our sponsors.

Our first Women & Wellness event was held on January 20, 2024! We are so happy that we got to connect with so many wonderful women living with epilepsy as well as moms, sisters, caregivers, and friends!

We heard from some incredible guest speakers including the Epilepsy Foundation of America’s President and CEO, Bernice Martin Lee; Dr. Aline Herlopian of Yale Comprehensive Epilepsy Center; and Dr. Anumeha Sheth of the Ayer Neuroscience Institute Seizure and Epilepsy Center.

We could not have put on this event without all the amazing people and organizations who donated their time and energy to provide spa services for our attendees including ZAG Fitness, Fuller Yoga, Bodywork by Jody, The Naturalist, K’s Therapeutic Touch, and Jess Loffredo.

We also want to thank our sponsors for their continuous support of EFCT and the local epilepsy community; SK Life Science, Jazz Pharmaceuticals, Marinus Pharmaceuticals, Neurelis Pharmaceuticals, and UCB.

We look forward to more days of learning, connection, and empowerment!  Information about our next Women & Wellness coming soon!
