Each year the Epilepsy Foundation of Florida holds its annual Walk the Talk for epilepsy events in 9 locations across the state to spread awareness and help beat the stigma associated with epilepsy.
1 in 26 people in the U.S. will develop epilepsy at some point in their lifetime. To bring awareness to this important topic, the Epilepsy Foundation of Florida is sharing stories of Floridians living with epilepsy for its annual Let's Talk About It awareness campaign to honor National November Epilepsy Awareness Month.
