Join us to learn about our initial findings about cerebral palsy (CP) and epilepsy next Tuesday, May 5 at 8 pm ET. Dr. Adam Ostendorf, a pediatric neurologist from Nationwide Children’s Hospital and the lead investigator for our epilepsy study group, will share a report from our first 18 months of data collection about epilepsy in the CP population. Dr. Ostendorf received a grant from the Pediatric Epilepsy Research Foundation to expand CPRN’s CP registry data collection to include specific questions about epilepsy that shed new light on treatments and needed research.
The CPRN CP Registry gathers data from annual CP clinic visits and interventions at hospitals across the United States. Epilepsy is the most common co-occuring condition in CP and creates further complexity for how to treat the two conditions together. Dr. Ostendorf will give a 20-minute presentation about these findings and the implications for research and then answer questions in an open Q&A. If you haven’t registered for the MyCP webinar series, you can sign up on CPRN.
