The “Big Brain” visited for Epilepsy Awareness Day. Policymakers, agency leaders and the community joined us at the California State Capitol to take a tour of their brain. Diana Dooley, Secretary of Health and Human Services will walk through the giant 10’ by 10’ inflatable brain. “Brain health is critical and this exhibit is a wonderful way for our lawmakers, community and school children to interact and learn more about how to care and “love your brain.”

We answered questions like: What happens when brain doesn’t not function properly?, What are seizures?, and How can I protect my brain?

There are over 360,000 Californians live with reoccurring seizures – epilepsy.

Join Epilepsy California and the Epilepsy Foundations of Northern California, Greater Los Angeles and San Diego County as we lead the fight to stop seizures, find a cure and overcome the challenges created by epilepsy.

Epilepsy California is the unified voice for 400,000 Californians with epilepsy. This grassroots effort of people with epilepsy and their family members, volunteers, medical professionals and service providers advocating to improve the lives of individuals with epilepsy and their families.
