Bone Health for the DEEs
August 4 @ 11:30 am – 12:30 pm EST
Join us to learn more about the brain – bone connection.
We are still learning but both epilepsy and anti-seizure medications (ASMs) are associated with adverse effects on bone health. Those taking ASMs have increased rates of bone loss and other issues that may contribute to an increased risk of fracture.
So what can we do?
Come hear from:
Dr Meena Balasubramanian – Senior Clinical Lecturer in Musculoskeletal Genetics at Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust
Dr Paul Arundel – Paediatric Consultant in Metabolic Bone Disease at Sheffield Children’s Hospital
