Epilepsy is a complex disease with significant and underappreciated global health impacts.  The epilepsy challenge is especially acute in Africa where lack of access to routine treatment and cultural stigmas are systemic problems.  The BAND Foundation is working to tackle epilepsy in Africa through a series of grants aimed at raising awareness and demonstrating solutions.  In this episode of Seizing Life – a weekly podcast produced by Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy (CURE) – BAND Foundation trustee and former CURE Board Chair Gardiner Lapham discusses BAND’s efforts.
