According to new data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are more people living with epilepsy in the U.S. than ever before, including approximately 470,000 children and teens and 3.4 million people overall.[iii]

Actor Greg Grunberg (who himself is the father of a son with epilepsy) has served for years as an avid advocate dedicated to raising awareness of the challenges people with epilepsy face every day – particularly children and their families. In partnership with the Epilepsy Foundation, Greg is helping launch the next phase of Talk About It!, an awareness campaign that urges people to have conversations about epilepsy. This November, the campaign is expanding to provide tools and resources to support families and children affected by epilepsy, to help them educate their communities on the condition and how it impacts their lives.

Greg and the Epilepsy Foundation believe that starting conversations about epilepsy can create greater understanding and actions that will help children with the condition feel supported and connected to others facing similar experiences.

Epilepsy is a condition that affects the brain and causes a person to have recurrent seizures. Seizures occur due to a disruption of electrical communication between neurons.

Join Greg and Dr. Christi Heck, Chair of the Epilepsy Foundation Professional Advisory Board,  as they discuss the Foundation’s Talk About It! campaign to advocate for children living with epilepsy.  Both guests will discuss the importance of this dialogue and the tools and resources on the campaign website for people to use to support kids with epilepsy and their families.
