  • When the SUDEP Institute was launched earlier this year, one of the first actions taken was to work toward the passage of legislation that would generate awareness and assist medical examiners in gathering data on the number of true SUDEP cases across the country. On August 7, Gov. Chris Christie (NJ) signed the first SUDEP measure into law. Gov. Pat Quinn (IL) followed suit on August 12. The model state law requires medical examiners to find out about a potential history of epilepsy as part of an autopsy and would help make sure all cases are reported to a national SUDEP registry.
  • EPIC Long Island (formerly the Epilepsy Foundation of Long Island) welcomes David S. Greenhaus and Peter O’Sullivan as new members of its Board of Directors.
