International Golden Light Award Winners 2021

Golden Lights at the 34th International Epilepsy Congress The IBE Golden Light Awards are an opportunity to recognise and reward young people affected by epilepsy - either because they have epilepsy or have made a significant positive impact on the lives of others who have the condition. The aim is to show that people with epilepsy do not have to be defined by their epilepsy but who embrace the call of the International Bureau for Epilepsy to ‘bring epilepsy out of the shadows and into the light’. This year 19 worthy candidates, nominated by their chapters, will be presented with their awards during the IBE Day at the 34th International Epilepsy Congress in September. By attending the virtual symposium, you will have the opportunity to hear them recount their remarkable stories and see them receive their award.
