DETAILS: Having epilepsy is associated with lower incomes, higher unemployment, and lower educational attainment. Lower socioeconomic status is also associated with poorer medication compliance. This free webinar from Partners Against Mortality in Epilepsy (PAME) will explore a better understanding of how these disparities contribute to higher rates of epilepsy mortality, both in the U.S. and globally. Where can we look to make progress?
The following panelists will share the latest science and well as personal experiences to help inform this important topic:
- Tanisha Tyler Graves, a Danny Did ambassador and mother of Marquis Chapman
- Jorge Bruneo, MD, MSPH, Professor of Neurology, Biostatistics and Epidemiology, Western University in Canada
- Daniel Friedman, MD, MSc, Professor of Neurology, NYU Grossman School of Medicine
- Alexa Erck, CDC Epidemiologist and Program Manager for the Sudden Death in the Young (SDY) Registry
- Thometta Cozart, MS, MPH, CHES, CPH, Multicultural Outreach Director, the Epilepsy Foundation
Danny Did is proud to be a part of this important conversation.
The webinar will take place via Zoom. Families, advocates, and professionals are welcome to participate.
