A Message to the AES Community from William D. Gaillard, MD, President of the American Epilepsy Society

William Davis Gaillard, MD

AES members and staff are busy planning a top-notch, in-person AES Annual Meeting for December 2020. Our commitment is to ensure that our members have uninterrupted access to the most current science and best clinical practices in epilepsy care. Of course, we are monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely and will follow recommendations of the CDC, WHO, and state and local health authorities to ensure the safety and well-being of our meeting attendees, exhibitors, and staff.

We deeply appreciate all of the AES researchers, physicians, advanced practice providers and other epilepsy professionals who are volunteering their time to plan a relevant and rigorous AES 2020 education program and to serve as faculty for the event.

We will keep you informed about our progress. In the meantime, AES is posting information about patient management during COVID-19 here.
