National Epilepsy Awareness Month in November is an annual event that teaches people about epilepsy’s causes and symptoms. During this month, many organizations join together to provide information about prevention, treatment, research, and resources to fight epilepsy.
DSF takes this opportunity each year to highlight Dravet syndrome and the complexities of this severe form of epilepsy throughout the month of November to highlight the significant challenges that our patient community faces. This year we are excited to debut a series of updated professional education videos whose development was prompted by the recent publication of the International Treatment Consensus on Diagnosis and Management of Dravet Syndrome. While designed for healthcare professionals, they are also a valuable resource for patient families.
We encourage you to follow us on our social media channels this month and share our posts on Dravet syndrome, including this new video series. Thank you for helping to continue to raise awareness of Dravet syndrome and the many needs of our patient community!
This video series is made possible thanks to educational grants from: Biocodex USA, Jazz Pharmaceuticals, Takeda, and UCB.
