In conjunction with the International Epilepsy Day 2020, the Neurology Unit of Department of Medicine, Hospital Canselor Tuanku Muhriz (HCTM), UKM celebrated with a roaring success on Feb 4, 2020. This first-ever remarkable public event at the UKMMC had a good turnout of nearly 260 participants comprising of doctors, nurses, patients, patients’ families, members of the Malaysian Epilepsy Society and other health professionals

Event started with an important lecture on “Faints and Fits” by Prof. Dato’ Dr. Raymond Azman Ali, who is our senior neurologist. It then followed by a creative video presentation by UKM medical students about the do’s and don’ts during seizure attacks. One of our epilepsy patients then performed an awesome violin solo on stage. During the tea break, there were overwhelming responses seen at various booths, especially the ones by pharmacists and members of the Malaysian Epilepsy Society

Prof. Dr. Tan Hui Jan as Head of Neurology Unit delivered an interesting talk on “Myths and Facts about Epilepsy”. The last yet practical talk was delivered by Ms. Farah Waheeda Tajurudin on “Understanding Your Medications”
This program ended with a medical quiz, which was interestingly fun and the top three scorers were awarded with gifts. The patients and their care-givers enjoyed this event and they look forward to participating again next year
