Whether you’re spreading the word one conversation at a time, sharing the latest Mayo Clinic research or planning an event, you’re inspiring others to make a difference too.

You also can earn additional badges by participating on Connect, the online patient-to-patient community.

I am on Briviact and it has changed my life I no longer have Partial Complex Seizures I would like to get this out that my insurance covered it for me and now I am a new person I was a Patient to Mayo Client in the early 2000’s I am now able to live without fear I would like to get the word out to the doctors at Mayo that this is a wonder drug for some reason…

Hello Cindy. I’m so glad to hear you’re doing well. If you’d like to reach out to others about your experience online, there is an Epilepsy and Seizures group on Connect: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/epilepsy-2bb359/ . If you’d like to share your experience with others in person, the Mayo Clinic Champions has some tips on that: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/champions/community-outreach-tools/ I’m sure others would love to hear about your experience.
