Epilepsy Across the Spectrum:
Promoting Health and Understanding
This new report from the Institute of Medicine examines the public health dimensions of the epilepsies. It details additional measures -- including community services, data gathering, and public education -- that would improve the management of epileptic patients' conditions and reduce the stigma associated with the disease.
This briefing was for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on March 30, 2012 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
