Epilepsy Foundation Texas provides care to local uninsured

Posted: Updated:

Epilepsy Foundation Texas is providing free epileptic care to patients without insurance.

The foundation brings doctors to Lubbock to talk about treating the disease. They say 1 in 26 people will be diagnosed with epilepsy and 1 in 10 children.

Dr. Sasha Alick says she wants to see people not affected by the disease learn how to react around someone with epilepsy.

"They know what to do if a person has a seizure in front of them," she said. "Like basic safety and just to break the stigma overall. And then in terms patients and family members and friends and all that so that they know how to help a loved one and how to get them the best care possible."

The foundation serves more than 150 counties throughout Texas.
