Foundation Quarterly September 2023

Epilepsy News From: Monday, September 18, 2023

School is back in session and we’re offering a lot to learn in the September edition of the Foundation Quarterly! Read the latest edition, now available on our website.

Inside This Issue

It’s back to school season and we’re celebrating the incredible kids and young adults who are a part of the epilepsy community. In addition to our special back-to-school issue, we have some exciting news. The Epilepsy Foundation is proud to introduce our new chief executive officer, Bernice “Bee” Martin Lee. Bee has epilepsy and knows what it’s like to struggle with seizures.

In this issue of the magazine, we spotlight kids who are doing amazing things in their community to create awareness. Oliver, for example, is a young man from Washington, D.C. who is using his experience to help pass a law in his state to keep kids with epilepsy safe at school. The story on the cover is about a young book writer with epilepsy who recently published a book for kids about seizures. And we also feature a young woman who has a little brother with epilepsy, and she is helping a researcher study different types of treatments to control seizures.

Finally, check out some fun facts about other kids around the country. Remember, you can make a difference no matter how old you are!
