Funding for Epilepsy Programs, Research, and a Cure

Epilepsy Programs at CDC

The Epilepsy Foundation believes epilepsy should be a federal public health priority, and supports investments in public health programs that help build safer communities, end stigma associated with epilepsy, educate community leaders, and build awareness that benefits everyone with epilepsy and other chronic health conditions and disabilities. We urge Congress to continue to invest in critical epilepsy public health programs at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) by to ensure the safety and health of people with epilepsy.
