To arrange for a presentation on epilepsy at a National Specialty or other gathering of dog fanciers, please contact me (Liz Hansen) at HansenL@missouri.edu . Let me know the date and location of the event, and what you'd like to hear about (primarily clinical, primarily research, or an overview), and I will check to see who may be available to speak to your group. Dr O'Brien, Dr Patterson, and I have been the most frequent presenters, though others have also done them as well.

We do have some presentations already booked for 2002, so if your club is interested, please contact me as soon as possible so that we can work you into the schedule!

Thanks,
Liz
