Our Mission

Advancing strategic national policies, innovative research programs, and funding to improve the lives and outcomes of ALL those living and struggling with The Epilepsies.
HKoh 350 dpi Current - Ellen Smith_edite

"Through collaboration and understanding, we can shatter the barriers surrounding epilepsy and create a world where knowledge, compassion, and opportunity prevail. With 1 in 26 persons diagnosed, all of us know someone with epilepsy. Research advances have accelerated our knowledge about this devastating disease, now we need policies and investments to translate these advances into improved patient outcomes."

Howard K. Koh, M.D., MPH,  Professor, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health;   Former 4th Assistant Secretary for Health for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (2009-2014)
