What is Teens Speak UP!
Teens Speak UP! is an amazing opportunity for 1 Connecticut teen, between the ages of 13 – 17 who has epilepsy, to tak a trip to Washington DC. There he/she will meet their elected officials to discuss epilepsy issues such as the need for public awareness, acceptance and the search for a cure. This is a unique opportunity to draw lawmakers attention to epilepsy and increase public awareness of its challenges. Candidates selected will also be expected to participate in a "Year of Service".
Applications for 2019 Teen Speak UP! Program will be available in November 2018.
