SUDEP, or Sudden Unexpected Death In Epilepsy refers to when an otherwise healthy person with epilepsy dies, and there is no connection to any other cause of death, such as an accident, illness, injury, or drowning. Many people who have lost a loved one to SUDEP didn't know anything about their risk of Sudden Unexpected Death in
Epilepsy. Join Empowering Epilepsy on Thursday, October 19, 2023 to learn more about SUDEP, who is at risk, and what proactive strategies you and your loved ones can take to reduce your risk.
Learn more from Stephen Hantus, MD, Adult Epileptologist at Cleveland Clinic Epilepsy Center, and from Steven Schachter, MD, Epileptologist and Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School.
