**This Event Has Now been Cancelled** Epilepsy Ireland are holding an event in Portlaoise for women with epilepsy on March 16th from 10am-2pm (registration at 9.30). This event will allow you to meet with other women with epilepsy in the locality as you share your own experiences and learn from others in a similar situation on how best to manage the condition.
This event will be split into two parts. In the morning session, we will have the expertise of Registered Advanced Nurse Practitioner in Epilepsy, Sinead Murphy, on hand to deliver a talk on the condition and to take any questions you might have.
The evening session will feature Antoinette Larkin, a mindfulness & yoga instructor, who will guide you through the practice of mindfulness & yoga. Mindfulness can be so important in managing your condition by building resilience & self confidence.
Finally, local Community Resource Officer for the area, Cliona Molloy, will also be in attendance to discuss any concerns or offer any advice to you where possible.
Lunch will also be provided on the day at this free event but pre-booking is essential so please contact Cliona on 0579346790 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to attend.
