Video: Introducing the New Epilepsy Community

Posted January 29th, 2010 by

In honor of the launch of the new PatientsLikeMe Epilepsy community this week, we have created a video highlighting how patients are coming together to share their experiences with epilepsy and learn from others. It’s now available on our PatientsLikeMe Epilepsy YouTube page.

This short video includes quotes from some of our members about what drove them to join the online community, and walks you through what the community looks like and how members are using it.   Know someone with epilepsy?  Share this video, our interview with Blueyedgoddez, and/or our announcement with partnering company, UCB.

Welcome to all those joining the epilepsy community!

(Special thanks to our new marketing team member, Aaron Fleishman, for pulling this video together.  It’s Aaron’s voice and his band’s music you’ll hear throughout.)
