PRLog - Nov. 1, 2012 - LOUGHBOROUGH, U.K. -- In November 2012, The Dravet Syndrome UK charity will be hosting their second annual Family and Professional Dravet Conference and the Trabasack team are happy to be attending. Taking place on 17th November, at The Park Royal Hotel in Warrington the conference has attracted many leading speakers in the field and as the husband and wife team at the centre of the Trabasack Company are parents to a child with Dravet Syndrome, attending the conference is extremely important to them personally as well as professionally. After attending the first conference in 2010, Trabasack is back for a second year, supporting a cause which is close to their family.

The Trabasack story appeared in the Dravet Syndrome UK’s Spring Newsletter, highlighting how their son was the main inspiration behind the product and how it was developed with his and the needs of others living with Dravet and similar syndromes in mind. The product has since been developed further and has a multitude of users with many different needs.

What is Dravet Syndrome?

A life limiting, genetic condition that causes severe epilepsy, learning disability and global developmental delay in childhood. The seizures are usually hard to treat and do not respond well to epileptic drugs.  

This Year’s Event

Many fantastic speakers have been confirmed for this year’s event, including Dr Charlotte Dravet herself as the guest of honour. Other speakers include a range of specialist consultants from hospitals across the UK including Alderhey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool and Yorkhill Hospital in Glasgow. Professor Mark Reese and Doctors Chung and Thomas from Wales Epilepsy Research will also be joining the other speakers at the event.

A range of interesting and essential topics will be discussed in depth including advancements in research, the value of early intervention, alternative treatments including the Ketogenic Diet and much more. There will be also a chance to hear of updates on many of the research projects currently funded by Dravet Syndrome. Anyone with a personal or professional interest in the area can attend the event, with both professional and family tickets available.
