Congratulations Luke Demsey!
The Epilepsy Foundation of Connecticut is pleased to announce that Luke Demsey will be the 2018 representative at the annual Teen Speak Up! event in Washington D.C.
Luke is currently a student in the ninth grade who is extremely interested in learning more about seizures and meeting other people with epilepsy. Luke is currently a Life Scout in Troop 92 in Cheshire and is working toward the rank of Eagle.
Teens Speak Up! provides an opportunity for teens with epilepsy and their parents to visit the nation's capital, receive advocacy training, meet with their legislators, and tell their personal stories. Teens Speak Up! is part of the Public Policy Institute.
Teens from across the country are nominated by affiliates and selected by the Foundation to participate in the program. After receiving training at TSU, each teen is asked to turn that training into action in their respective home districts through our Year of Service program.
