US News Article – Educating the Public about Epilepsy

There was an article that came out recently on US News and World Report called Epilepsy 101: Living With Seizures.

I am very happy that they decided to do the article.  It talks about one specific person’s struggle with epilepsy and the story helps illustrate some basic information about the condition.  More articles by reputable newspapers such as US News are needed to help get rid of this stigma and misinformation.  Epilepsy is a neurological disorder that does not have a cure.  Maybe if more people understood it, then they would be willing to fund institutions attempting to find a cure.
