ELHS Community

People Living With Epilepsy And Families

People living with epilepsy and their families are a critical part of the ELHS. The ELHS community needs you on our team. To help the ELHS get started, a Community Core is engaging people with epilepsy and families from across the epilepsy community.

As the ELHS gets started at individual epilepsy centers, there will be more volunteer opportunities to get involved at the local level. There are many ways to participate — sharing your experiences, needs, hopes, successes, and challenges makes sure that your voice helps determine priorities for the Learning Network. Most importantly, participating in the ELHS with your health care team will help us learn directly from you.

Benefits of participating in the Learning Network include:

  • Developing new leadership skills
  • Making a difference for people living with epilepsy in your community
  • Engaging with your local epilepsy program
  • Improving connections with your medical providers and their peers
  • Connecting with other individuals living with epilepsy and their families
  • Participating in and leading sessions designed specifically for people living with epilepsy
