The Fight Against Epilepsy
In Louisiana, there are almost 55,000 people living with epilepsy. 1 in 10 people will have a seizure in their lifetime.
Although it’s one of the most common neurological disorders, epilepsy gets very little attention on a national scale. Those affected by epilepsy face a spectrum of challenges, including finding appropriate medical care, discrimination, stigma, mental health, and the difficulties of daily living.
