Description

Given the escalated concerns around COVID-19, for the safety and well-being of our community, we feel it is best to take the precautionary step of changing the #GETA2020 two-day face to face conference to a half day livestream conference. 
 
We were excited to host the 4th annual face to face GETA conference in May. However, we have continued to keep a close eye on the emerging advice of health authorities and we think it is sensible at this stage to avoid gathering so many of our community at one location.

Please join the livestream conference to hear the latest on genetic epilepsy research and precision medicine treatments from world-leading medical and scientific experts. You will have the opportunity to ask questions.
