EPILEPSY AWARENESS MONTH 2017


With your help, support and dedication to our mission, we raise awareness about epilepsy all year long. But during the month of November, we truly kick it into overdrive.

 

We're thrilled to announce the return of our successful "I Am One" campaign! Throughout the month of November, you'll see billboards featuring our 2017 Winning Kids in the Capital Region, Hudson Valley and North Country, a television commercial about our agency on ABC (channel 10 in the Capital Region) and hear our radio ad on B95.5 and Magic 590 AM!

Join a Campaign

We’re supporting a nation-wide campaign called #ShareMySeizure. We'll post videos and first person descriptions of seizures on social media with the goal of educating others about epilepsy, and showing that no two seizures are alike. We encourage you to share these posts and reach out to us if you have a video of your seizure you're willing to share. Together, we can raise awareness and further our mission of education!

We’re also participating in the national awareness campaign called #AimForZero. The purpose of this campaign is to encourage those living with epilepsy to put four key actions into practice to reduce the risk of SUDEP, or Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy. We encourage you to check out our social media to learn more and discuss how YOU work to reduce your risk.

 

To recognize the incredible individuals who make a daily positive impact on the epilepsy community, actor Greg Grunberg started an awareness campaign called #MyEpilepsyHero. Greg’s son lives with epilepsy and is his epilepsy hero!  During the month of November, tag us in your social media posts about YOUR epilepsy hero! Use the hashtag #MyEpilepsyHero and we’ll share your posts!

 

 

 

 

advocating for you


The Epilepsy Foundation of Northeastern New York has an active grassroots advocacy network where consumers effect change in the social service delivery system at the local, state, and national levels. Development of services are provided by individual advocacy and systems advocacy.

At the Epilepsy Foundation, we advocate vigorously for people with epilepsy. We believe that having access to medical specialists, the right medications and treatment options makes a tremendous difference in the lives of individuals with epilepsy and their family members. Besides advocating for the best medical care, we offer support in social services, employment, insurance and legal rights.

At the Epilepsy Foundation of Northeastern New York, we believe that by raising the level of awareness and teaching the general public about epilepsy, we can help reduce the fear and stigma associated with the disorder.
