Dear Friends and Colleagues,

First of all, and on behalf of the Emirati League Against Epilepsy (ELAE) Executive Board, I would like to express my sincere appreciation for your interest to join us at our 7th ELAE International Congress. As you all aware of the global spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and its unprecedented impact on all sectors, which has caused major difficulties and uncertainties in running businesses, including medical events, as usual. Therefore, the 7th ELAE organizing Committee, and after consulting with the UAE Governmental officials, has decided to conduct our congress on October 29-30, 2021. We have decided to keep the same agenda that was announced in 2020, as a reflection on the impact of COVID 19 on all us, with the addition of one session on delivering epilepsy care at the time of disasters.

I am really grateful for your understanding and I truly hope your schedule would allow you to join us in person for the next year’s congress, as I am quite confident, with the hard work and support of all of us, we will pass through these clouds and recover our businesses stronger than ever.

Once more, thank you for your interest to join us at our congress and I wish all of you good health and good spirits.

I look forward to welcoming you online at the Seventh UAE Epilepsy Congress.


Dr. Taoufik Alsaadi
Congress Chairman
President, Emirati League Against Epilepsy
