Highlighting the challenges faced by people with drug resistant epilepsy.

November is Epilepsy Awareness Month in the USA, so here in the UK we are highlighting the challenges faced by people with drug resistant epilepsy and available treatments. On Friday 20 November, our Medical Director, Professor Ley Sander, will be joined by people with epilepsy to talk about the impact of uncontrolled seizures on radio stations across the country.
