Year of Service
"Welcome to the Epilepsy Foundation's Year of Service campaign! By working together we can help educate millions of Americans about epilepsy and improve the lives of people living with the condition." - Brien Smith, M.D., Immediate Past Chair of the Board of Directors, Epilepsy Foundation
The Epilepsy Foundation has launched the Year of Service campaign to enlist the support of our grassroots advocates. Although participation in this initiative is required of those attending the Epilepsy Foundation's Public Policy Institute/Kids Speak Up! conference, the Year of Service campaign is open to any advocate willing and able. By volunteering and participating in the Year of Service, you can partner with the Foundation in order to help raise public awareness and support for finding a cure, better access to care, and an end to discrimination.
Thank you for your commitment to advocacy. We look forward to working with you!
