"Epilepsy affects three million people in the U.S. and 65 million worldwide," said Larry O'Connor, founder and chief executive of OWC. "We at OWC are happy that our technology will help give the Epilepsy Foundation the opportunity to make this year's Netathon an unparalleled success, and are proud to support the organization and the ongoing work it does to make a critical difference in the lives of so many people."
On May 6, the Epilepsy Foundation and actor/philanthropist Greg Grunberg will host "Talk About it for Epilepsy", the Foundation's online, streaming event. The eight-hour Netathon will bring together celebrities, local Epilepsy Foundations, and epilepsy and seizure experts, talking about key epilepsy-related topics to spread awareness and raise funds for epilepsy. The event will take place in Los Angeles and will be available on CBS and Epilepsy Foundation digital properties, livestreamed on epilepsy.com, YouTube, TalkAboutIt.org, Twitch.tv (an Amazon company), and CBSlocal.com/epilepsy. Viewers can use and follow the hashtag: #Netathon2017 during the event to engage with the online community.
