On Friday March 30, the Epilepsy Foundation of America held the 2012 National Walk for Epilepsy VIP Reception. Eisai sponsored the event. It was held at the National Museum of Women in the Arts the evening before the National Walk for Epilepsy. I embedded a 39 picture photo gallery below the initial photos.
At the event, EFA honored Howard Koh and his part at creating the Institute of Medicine Report on the Spectrum of Epilepsy. According to Tony Coelho, the IOM would not have released the report if not for Dr. Koh.
Several other prominent epilepsy advocates attended the event, including Susan Axelrod and Carmita Vaughan from CURE Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy. (I saw Carmita at the walk the next morning also.) Many others attended. If you can identify them, would you please use the comment section and add names and affiliations if relevant? I will update the blog post periodically and add names and links to sites.
Below is my event photo gallery. Since I returned home on April 3rd, I reformatted the gallery so it was more obvious that other photos were included. While I know many of the people at the event, I do not want to take credit for the work that others have done to organize events and maintain organizations. If you see people in the photos, please acknowledge them.
