What is “Seizures and You: Take Charge of the Facts”?

Seizures and You: Take Charge of the Facts is an epilepsy awareness program for teens in high school to dispel myths and reduce the perceived stigma associated with epilepsy within the teen population.

It is part of an effort to educate teens and push for the inclusion of epilepsy education in school health and science classes.

How Do I Bring the Program to My School?

The Epilepsy Foundation provides a program kit with a facilitator’s guide, a CD-ROM containing essential materials, and a DVD that you can use to help raise awareness at your school. Contact Program Manager Se'an Bournes at sbournes@efa.org or 301-918-3792 to order a kit.
