Epilepsy Newfoundland and Labrador attended the CLAE Scientific Meeting again this year, and was proud to have the conference right here in our province. Having such focus on epilepsy and epilepsy research in NL was outstanding and truly beneficial for our epilepsy community. We were especially proud to be the hosting city this year as 2018 marks the 20th anniversary of the Canadian Epilepsy Alliance, of whom Epilepsy Newfoundland and Labrador is a founding member.
