ETMC will offer a free KnowledgeFirst Forum on seizures with Dr. Gina Jetter,

fellowship-trained epileptologist with Northeast Texas Neurology Associates and the ETMC Neurological Institute.

The event will be held at noon on Nov. 7 in the ETMC Pavilion, 801 Clinic Drive in Tyler.

“Seizures are symptoms of a problem in the brain,” said Dr. Jetter. “There are many

types of seizures and they can have many causes. Determining the type of seizure a person is having and its cause leads to better treatment.”

Dr. Jetter will also talk about ETMC Tyler’s epilepsy monitoring unit.

Lunch will be served.

Free parking is available next to the ETMC Pavilion.

The gate and building will open at 11:15 a.m. and the presentation will begin at noon.
