On Friday, February 9th, at 12 p.m. PT/3 p.m. ET, neurologist and epileptologist Dr. Ifrah Zawar joins Being Patient Live Talks to discuss seizures, cognitive decline, and dementia. As she discussed in our article on seizures, epilepsy can accelerate cognitive decline, and the condition can also be mistaken for cognitive decline.
Zawar is an adult neurologist, epileptologist, and an Assistant Professor at the University of Virginia. Her clinical and research work focuses on seizures and epilepsy in older adults and epilepsy in people with dementia. She serves on editorial boards of prestigious epilepsy and Alzheimer’s disease journals and has won multiple awards and recognition for her research endeavor.
