Speak Up Speak Out

Public Policy Network

Is Epilepsy Important to You?

Become a voice for people with epilepsy

We believe there is a critical need to develop a strong, organized epilepsy advocacy network in Texas. The Speak Up Speak Out Public Policy Network helps to protect the rights of people with epilepsy and seizure disorders. The group works to ensure that their concerns are fully considered by those formulating public policy and legislation. The goal of the network is to educate legislators and other officials about the needs of persons with epilepsy, and to ensure that those who make the decisions do so with these needs in mind.
