Colosseum turns purple for International Epilepsy Day!
11 February, 2020
International Epilepsy Day is a special event which promotes awareness of epilepsy in more than 120 countries each year.
Every year on the second Monday of February people join together to celebrate and highlight the problems faced by people with epilepsy, their families and carers.
This is a day for everyone, no matter where you are, no matter how small your group or large your area, no matter whether you focus on the medical or the social aspects of the disease. We want you to help us celebrate International Epilepsy Day! Let’s speak with one global voice.
The Day is a joint initiative by the International Bureau for Epilepsy (IBE) and the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE).
Here we see the Roman Colosseum, thanks to the efforts of the Italian League Against Epilepsy (LICE).
