November is National Epilepsy Awareness Month!

Epilepsy isn’t biased. It doesn’t care about who you are or where you’re from. It can affect anyone with a brain.

1 in 10 people will have at least one seizure in their lifetime, and 1 in 26 will develop epilepsy.

As one of those 1 in 26, I ask for your help to spread awareness about this neurological disorder. Be part of #StaySafeSide, a nationwide effort highlighting the importance of recognizing a seizure and promoting seizure first aid.

Seizure first aid isn’t brain surgery. It’s as simple as – Stay, Safe, Side.

See the Epilepsy Foundation’s Seizure First Aid poster below to learn how to be seizure smart.

Dare to be seizure smart! Educate others about seizure preparedness and encourage others to take action. Together we can make a difference!

About me? I’m never good at these things, but here are the basics. I’m a journalism and film graduate from the University of Texas at Austin. I'm a dedicated digital content nerd with over eight years of experience in digital content management, content writing, copy editing, and project management. Currently, I'm a staff writer for The American Genius, and I manage my personal blog that advocates for epilepsy awareness. I LOVE to bake! I like to challenge myself to learn new decorating and baking techniques. And although I’d love to say I’ve mastered everything and have never burnt a dessert, it simply isn’t true.
