You gave feedback … and Living Well listened.
|The “new” header that went away|
I recently uploaded a new header, logo and color scheme for the Living Well site. You as readers spoke up and said “NO”.
So we are back to the old look (at least for a while). Until we find a new one that gets good feedback.
Keep those comments coming. We hear you!
There have been a few exciting new developments at Living Well With Epilepsy that we wanted to share with you. Recently we were nominated for a shorty award, welcomed our 3000th visitor and got a new look.
When voting closed for the Shorty Awards, epilepsy held a respectable 5th place out of more than 180 nominees in the Health category. This competition helped raise awareness for epilepsy and gave us the opportunity to connect with some pretty amazing folks.
3000 visitors to Living Well
Living Well just hit another milestone. This week our site welcomed our 3000th unique visitor according to our latest Google Analytics stats. Thank you to the 3000 of you who visited and we appreciate the more than 8000 times you’ve come by to check out the latest updates on Living Well With Epilepsy.

We are in the process of rolling out a new look. That includes a logo for Living Well. We’d love to hear your feedback on the change. Like it? Don’t like it? Let us know by commenting below.
According to the Epilepsy Foundation, 12 percent or more than 350,000 of the over 3 million Americans with epilepsy are African-American. African-Americans are also more likely to be diagnosed with epilepsy than Caucasians; they more often experience status epilepticus; and they are at an increased risk for Sudden Unexpected Death from Epilepsy (SUDEP).
Web resource just for you
In response to these dramatic statistics, the Epilepsy Foundation has created a new site called Epilepsy and the African American community. The site features real personal stories, resources and is packed with information on epilepsy.
