Why I volunteer
” I have appreciated Epilepsy Action’s reliable information in the past, and I would like to help that continue. I enjoy reading more about epilepsy syndromes. When I was first diagnosed with epilepsy I didn’t know much about it, so it is helpful to learn about different elements of epilepsy conditions while reviewing articles.” Christine
