Epilepsy is a seizure disorder affecting three million Americans. Clusters of nerve cells in the brain signal abnormally, causing the person to stare blankly, be temporarily confused, have convulsions or even lose consciousness.

“Coping with Kidney Conditions”
A normal kidney has many jobs, including filtering blood, regulating minerals within the blood and producing hormones. If the kidney stops doing its job, people can be left with multiple health problems. Join Dr. Christopher Lodowsky, an independent urologist on the medical staff at Centegra Health System, during National Kidney Month, as he discusses conditions from kidney stones to renal failure. Learn the causes and symptoms associated with certain kidney conditions and the treatment options available. “Coping with Kidney Conditions” will be from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 27 at Centegra Health Bridge Fitness Center-Huntley, 10450 Algonquin Road.
