National Epilepsy Awareness Month 2019


This year during National Epilepsy Awareness Month (NEAM), the Epilepsy Foundation is rolling out #StaySafeSide, a nationwide effort to highlight the importance of recognizing a seizure and promote seizure first aid. The Foundation is also expanding a series of Public Service Announcements (PSAs) focused on seizure first aid to include two new markets — Tampa and Los Angeles, in addition to Chicago, Atlanta and Philadelphia. The #StaySafeSide PSAs are part of the Epilepsy Foundation’s five-year cooperative agreement with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and are designed to help improve the general public’s awareness about seizure recognition and first aid.
