Northern California is a unique location with a great number of premier epilepsy centers and specialists all practicing their incredible craft right in our backyard. Our annual EFNC Physicians and Clinicians Consortium is designed to support these heroes by providing a time and space for the leaders in our field to network, share ideas and opportunities, and create invaluable partnerships. Please join us in our shared vision to create a world in which a cure for epilepsy is a reality.

Coffee, lunch, wine and beer will be served.

Each year, a special guest speaker is invited to attend to share unique, pertinent and valuable information and insight to the practice of epilepsy and seizure disorders.
