"November is Epilepsy Awareness Month"

Epilepsy is a neurological condition that produces brief disturbances in the normal
electrical functions of the brain that can cause people to have seizures.
Epilepsy effects more than 3 million people in the United States. Epilepsy is
non-discriminatory. It effects any age group, gender, race or ethnicity. Here
in Connecticut approximately 60,000 people have Epilepsy. 1 in 10 people will
have some type of seizure. Research to find a cure for this sometimes
debilitating disease is ongoing.
