Brainwave CEO, Mike Glynn has been elected President of The International Bureau for Epilepsy (IBE). Mike has been a long serving member of the IBE Executive Committee and has been treasurer since 2005.

Mike's four-year term of office began yesterday at the IBE General Assembly in Budapest (July 1) during the 28th International Epilepsy Congress in Budapest.

The IBE is an international organisation that serves to develop, support and link national epilepsy organisations around the world. The organisation's aim is to improve the quality of life of all people with epilepsy and their families and carers.

IBE addresses social problems such as education, employment, insurance, driving licence restrictions and public awareness around the world and works closely with the International League against Epilepsy (ILAE), an organisation of medical professionals involved in the medical and scientific issues of epilepsy.
