November is National Epilepsy Awareness Month.

Our Theme for November 2022 is Stronger Together Connecting Epilepsy Communities. Our campaign will feather the connections available for people with epilepsy and their caregivers.

Why are we focusing on Community?
78% of caregivers said that receiving a diagnosis helped them connect to other families, organizations, and communities, and 97% of those who formed connections reported that these groups are helpful. Yet less than 60% of neurologists are referring families to these types of resources.* Epilepsy Alliance America and our member organizations provide vitally needed connection opportunities for people affected by epilepsy.

*This statistic was provided by Child Neurology Foundation from data collected as part of the 2022 Needs Assessment. Over 1,513 caregivers and 152 neurologists participated.
