About the Event

Leigh Goldie, Founder and Executive Director of Empowering Epilepsy, presents The History of Epilepsy at the Beachwood Public Library.

Did you know 1 in 10 people will have a seizure in their lifetime, and 1 in 26 people will be diagnosed with epilepsy?

Epilepsy documentation dates back to 3000 BCE. Due to the lack of medical understanding of seizures, a lot of misinformation about this "sacred disease," to this day, is prevalent. Learn more about the history of epilepsy, and how seizures are better managed today from Leigh Goldie, M.Ed., Founder and Executive Director of Empowering Epilepsy.
