This program allows young people between the ages of 13-17, and their families, to visit Washington DC to meet with their legislators as advocates for people with epilepsy.  The program stresses the need for public awareness, acceptance and the search for a cure.  It offers a unique opportunity to draw lawmakers’ attention to epilepsy and increase public awareness of its challenges.  This is held in conjunction with the Epilepsy Foundation’s annual Public Policy Institute in Washington DC.
