Epilepsy Awareness Month: November 2010

posted in: News 5

This coming November will be Epilepsy Awareness Month. But I wonder, will this be another year without any mention of epilepsy in the news? I hope not.

It would be great to tackle the stigma and take on a campaign similar to Stand Up 2 Cancer. For now though, Epilepsy Foundation offices around the country are organizing events, conferences and walks to celebrate Epilepsy Awareness. With a little help they can raise the public consciousness.

So check out your local Epilepsy Foundation Affiliate to find out what’s happening in your neighborhood at:

Or follow me on twitter @jessicaksmith, where you can link to many of the any of the epilepsy organizations throughout the world.

Comment here to showcase any activities that are happening in your area for epilepsy awareness month. It would be great to see some of the activities happening all over the world.

Check back to see what’s happening.
