Marshall Health to observe Epilepsy Awareness Month

Marshall Health is hosting two events in November for Epilepsy Awareness Month, including the Epilepsy Awareness Walk, which takes place at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 8, at the Barboursville Park Pond Shelter 8. Entertainment includes a special appearance by Batman, a cake-decorating competition, kid-friendly crafts and a cakewalk.

On Tuesday, Nov. 10, an Epilepsy Awareness Symposium will be held from 10 a. m. to 3 p.m. in the Cabell Huntington Hospital Atrium. The event will focus on helping participants learn about epilepsy and its management.  Art and essay contest winners will be announced during the symposium.
