Epilepsy Awareness Month

Friday Nov 1st, 2013

Happy Friday to all! Today marks the beginning of a special month… if you don’t know already, November is Epilepsy Awareness Month. This really gives everyone a chance to raise awareness and educate each other on the facts about this disorder. Our friends at the Epilepsy Foundation are running a great contest all month long called the Now I Know campaign. From their website:

Introducing the “Now I Know” Video Campaign

November is National Epilepsy Awareness Month!

As part of our mission to help overcome the challenges created by epilepsy, we’re pleased to announce our Now I Know video campaign.

When it comes to epilepsy, what do you know now that you wish you knew sooner?

People with epilepsy and their friends, family and caregivers have until January 15, 2013 to log on to Facebook.com/EpilepsyFoundationOfAmerica to submit a short video sharing their experiences.

Visitors to our Facebook page will have the opportunity to vote for their favorites and share the videos through their social networks. At the end of the contest, the videos with the most votes in each of four regions, will win iPads, among other prizes.

Select videos may also be featured here on our website and at our National Walk for Epilepsy in Washington, DC. We hope to pool the collective knowledge of the epilepsy community into an easy-to-use resource and to serve as a jump-start point for talking about the disorder with our communities.

Submit your video today to our Now I Know! Facebook app.
