We are also keeping up-to-date on information coming out of the CDC, FDA and WHO to help to ensure our community’s safety.

If You Know Someone in Crisis: Suicide Prevention Resources

HHS’s Office of Civil Rights issued this guidance that specifies “persons with disabilities should not be denied medical care on the basis of stereotypes, assessments of the quality of life, or judgments about a person’s relative “worth” based on the presence or absence of disabilities. Decisions by covered entities concerning whether an individual is a candidate for treatment should be based on an individualized assessment of the patient based on the best available objective medical evidence.” This is very positive news and the Epilepsy Foundation along with coalition partners is assessing whether further action is needed.
