Director of the Facial Paralysis Institute and founder of the Facial Paralysis & Bell’s Palsy Foundation in Beverly Hills Babak Azizzadeh MD, FACS, is pleased to announce the next facial paralysis support group meeting, which will be held in Beverly Hills on March 23, 2013. March’s support group meeting will feature special guest Judy Baer, LMFT, who will lead a discussion on, “How To Encourage & Gain The Support of our Loved Ones During Our Facial Paralysis Journey.”
“I’m very excited to have Judy be our special guest. She plays an extremely integral role at the Facial Paralysis Institute and the Foundation, where she helps patients overcome their struggles with the condition on a daily basis,” said Babak Azizzadeh, MD, FACS.
In addition to special guest speaker Judy Baer, family members of those dealing with facial paralysis or Bell’s palsy will also be invited to participate. The meeting will feature a breakout session during the second half where family members will be able to talk with one another about coping methods, share success stories, and become better acquainted with one another.
“We always encourage family members of our patients to attend the Foundation’s support group meetings because they play such an integral role in the success of how they respond to their treatment. When families fully understand what their loved one is going through, they’re able to better help them get through the fight emotionally,” said Dr. Azizzadeh.
