WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE EVENT   

 

During the advocacy training, you will learn how to share your story with your legislator. We will provide you with a packet of information with the epilepsy community’s policy priorities to leave behind for each legislator.

 

We also encourage you to write your story to share but limit it to 1 page. After the training, we will break into groups for the afternoon meetings with legislators.
