The VA Epilepsy Centers of Excellence (ECOE), in partnership with the VHA Employee Education System, developed a video series titled “Veterans and Epilepsy: Basic Training.” This series is currently comprised of five videos. Each video in the series features a veteran sharing his or her personal experiences and unique challenges balancing the medical, personal, and social aspects associated with having recurring seizures. The goal of the video series is to promote public awareness of the impact of epilepsy in the lives of veterans and to convey that these individuals are able to live full, productive, successful lives.
If you or someone you know is a veteran with seizures interested in seeking services at one of the Epilepsy Centers of Excellence, please speak with your local primary care provider or neurologist. Your health care provider will be able to determine if you might benefit from services provided by the ECoE and assist you with scheduling an appointment.
