On December 6, 2013 at the World Changers: Art of Innovation Gala, the Epilepsy Foundation had the privilege of honoring two giants: Warren Lammert and Dr. Steven Schachter.
Warren is the co-founder of the Epilepsy Therapy Project and Chair of our Board of Directors. Warren's vision... is unmatched in bringing an entrepreneurial spirit to accelerating new therapies in a timeframe that matters for people with epilepsy. Warren was a key architect in merging the Epilepsy Therapy Project and the Epilepsy Foundation to create an organization that is an unwavering ally for people living with seizures.
Steve is one of the world's top medical minds dedicated to epilepsy, and is known for his approach of focusing on the person-- not just the patient. Steve celebrates the achievements of people with epilepsy -- many of whom are great creators of art and music -- as a way to prove an individual is not defined by a condition like epilepsy. Steve is also the author of numerous books, the founding editor of "Epilepsy and Behavior," and a founding editor-in-chief of epilepsy.com.
Congratulations to Warren Lammert and Dr. Steven Schachter---the Epilepsy Foundation's 2013 World Changers.
