Education & Outreach

 

Increase your understanding and become a better self-advocate, caregiver, family member, friend, colleague or employer. Whether or not you know someone with epilepsy, EVERYONE can learn how to recognize various types of seizures and how to perform seizure first aid in order to END EPILEPSY and its impact on society.
