Headway: a new roadmap for brain health 
Focus Epilepsy

During the Digital Event, the results of the “Headway: A new roadmap for Brain Health – Focus Epilepsy” have been presented, which was conceived and launched at the beginning of 2022 by the Think Tank The European House - Ambrosetti in partnership with Angelini Pharma with the aim of creating an expert panel for strategic reflection, analysis, dialogue and comparison between various European experiences in the management of individuals with epilepsy.
In the different sessions, we also talked, among others, about the adoption of the Intersectoral Global Action Plan on Epilepsy and other Neurological disorders by the WHO, the importance of European collaboration in Epilepsy care and research and the challenges encountered by individuals with epilepsy in workplaces, schools and society in general and possible areas of improvement.
