News from Representative Tom Emmer

Dear Friend,

Today, I want to take a moment to raise awareness about a disease affecting over 3.4 million Americans. As the 4th most common neurological disease in the nation, epilepsy remains misunderstood by many. Since 1 out of every 26 people will be diagnosed with this illness, we should all take the time to understand the impact and learn seizure first aid. 

During Epilepsy Awareness Month, I encourage you to utilize these resources to better understand this condition that many Americans experience: 

  • To better understand epilepsy, visit here
  • A helpful glossary of terms on this condition can be found, here
  • For information on seizure first aid and safety, visit here
  • If you are a caregiver to someone with epilepsy, there are resources for you here.

If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact the Epilepsey Foundation’s Helpline 24/7 by calling: 1-800-332-1000. You can also ask a question online here


P.S. Thank you Tayler (Ramsey, MN), for your suggestion to highlight Epilepsy Awareness Month!
