Video: Dr Melanie Alarcio – World Encephalitis Day by Encephalitis Global

This video features Dr. Melanie Alarcio speaking at the FACES 2014 Encephalitis Conference in La Jolla, California. She talks about the book, Understanding Hashimoto’s Encephalopathy quite early in the seminar. This book can be found at Amazon.co.uk (and their dot com site) under the title Understanding Hashimoto’s Encephalopathy: A Guide for Patients, Families and Caregivers.

She gives a very useful explaination of what encephalopathy is and draws some distinctions between “encephalopathy” and “encephalitis” which is very useful to patients, advocates, and caregivers.
