Let’s Educate Candidates for Congress about Epilepsy! | October 7, 2010

Take Action: Let’s Make Epilepsy an Election-Year Issue!

Election Day is less than a month away and candidates are paying close attention to what voters have to say.  This gives us a great chance to educate them about epilepsy, the need to find a cure, better treatments and stopping discrimination in schools and at work.

The Epilepsy Foundation has sent every candidate for Congress a questionnaire about the condition.  (Download a copy at http://tinyurl.com/EpilepsyQuestionnaire.)
We now need you to email the candidates in your area and ask them to complete and return the questionnaire to the Epilepsy Foundation’s national office.
We’ve made it super easy to help.  Simply click on the link below to send a pre-written email to the candidates in your area.  You may also add your personal details to the message.
Many thanks for taking action.  To read an article about this initiative, please visit – http://t.co/qlkxQRA
