A Closer Look: Spotlight on Epilepsy
Diet quality and food security status are essential components of optimal management of epilepsy, a disorder of the brain that causes repeated seizures. Epilepsy affects 3.4 million Americans and 3 in 10 children who had at least one seizure in the past year live in homes without enough food. This spotlight issue brief developed by Feeding America’s Health Equity Action League (HEAL) in collaboration with Epilepsy Foundation raises awareness about the intersection of epilepsy with nutrition and food insecurity. The brief additionally offers suggestions on actions organizations and individuals can take to advance health equity and ensure all individuals living with epilepsy have a fair opportunity to live long and healthy lives.
