In conjunction with the American Epilepsy Society (AES), we had the great pleasure of meeting with Barbara Jobst (Chair, Council of Education, American Epilepsy Society, USA) to discuss the Disrupting Disparities project which aims to improve outcomes for underserved people with epilepsy (PWE) by improving the epilepsy clinical knowledge of the non-specialist epilepsy care workforce, and by deepening understanding of social determinants of health and commitment to epilepsy self-management by the epilepsy specialist workforce. The project will launch in September 2021.
