Advocacy Sign Up

Become a member of the Epilepsy Foundation of Central & South Texas Public Policy Network.

The Epilepsy Foundation of Central & South Texas believes there is a critical need to develop a strong, organized epilepsy advocacy network in our state. Such a group would help to protect the rights of people with epilepsy and seizure disorders. The group would also work 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.
