Advocacy Priorities

Advocacy

 

The Epilepsy Foundation advocates on behalf of people with the epilepsies and their family members and caregivers to overcome the challenges of living with the epilepsies and accelerate therapies to stop seizures, find cures and save lives.

Our advocacy priorities include:

  • Ensuring access to quality health care that is affordable, physician-directed and person-centered;
  • Ending epilepsy-related discrimination and protecting the rights of people with disabilities;
  • Promoting public health, education and awareness about the epilepsies; and
  • Fostering biomedical innovation through incentivizing development of new therapies and the promotion of research to gain a better understanding of causes, consequences, and outcomes, and, ultimately, cures for all the epilepsies.
