This year, you'll find an inspiration wall in the Plenary Session Room (Edison Ballroom C and D), where all meeting participants are invited to share their motivation to be part of this meeting and the PAME community. Cards will be available for you to share your thoughts. If you have personally been touched by epilepsy, please consider bringing a picture of your loved one, or whomever it is that might inspire your passion. We hope that this wall will serve as a tangible reminder of our individual and shared purpose.
