HUNTINGTON — The Epilepsy Foundation West Virginia is a new statewide organization recently funded by the national Epilepsy Foundation of America. Its mission is to lead the fight to overcome the challenges of living with epilepsy and to accelerate therapies to stop seizures, find cures and save lives.

From 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 8, women affected by epilepsy are invited to The Pottery Place, 940 3rd Ave. in Huntington, to make connections with other women who have epilepsy or who are caring for someone with epilepsy. Greenwich Biosciences is providing the support for this event.

To reserve a space, contact Chris Mullett at 304-669-0175 or
