You are invited to join a select group of advocates who care about funding for epilepsy research, access to medical care for your patients and putting an end to discrimination of people with epilepsy. As an expert in your field it is critically important that you get involved. As an E-PAL, you will have the opportunity to sign on to group letters in support of research funding, attend local meetings with elected officials and issue statements in support of various health and disability issues affecting people with epilepsy and their families. You may even be called upon to testify before Congress or provide critical information to Congress or White House staff when policy is being crafted.
Becoming an E-PAL does not involve a significant investment of time. Nor do you need to be an expert in public policy, advocacy or government relations. The only requirement is a desire to improve the lives of the more than 3 million Americans affected by epilepsy.
Please join the Epilepsy Advocacy Network, made up of representatives from AES, AAN and the Epilepsy Foundation, to make a difference. Sign up now.
