Ambassador for Epilepsy
Dr. Zarine Mogal from Karachi, Pakistan has been named the international Ambassador for Epilepsy by the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE) and International Bureau for Epilepsy (IBE). She has been invited to Dublin in September to receive her award at the 35th International Epilepsy Congress.
The Ambassador for Epilepsy is a recognition for the outstanding achievements of an individual in the international struggle against epilepsy. The awardee must have made a commitment “above and beyond the call of duty”, either voluntarily or professionally, in the field of epilepsy.
Dr. Zarine Mogal is an outstanding contributor to epilepsy care in Pakistan and the international epilepsy world. Her conceptualized and executed integrated epilepsy services nationally with experiences and impressive results duly shared with the international epilepsy community, fulfill the goals of ILAE, IBE and the recently introduced WHO’s Intersectoral Global Action Plan on Epilepsy and Other Neurological Disorders (IGAP). She is a visionary leader, having devoted to the epilepsy campaign in Pakistan since the past three decades. Her contribution towards epilepsy in Pakistan has been exceptional and barely anyone in the country can match or excel her devotion and achievements towards the cause.
She has previously been awarded the Asian & Oceanian Outstanding Achievement Epilepsy Award by ILAE-AO and has been the first recipient of Epilepsy Society of Australia’s scholarship in Clinical Epileptology & Neurophysiology.
