ADVOCACY

Dr. Bouchey is a tireless advocate for Epilepsy, both in Indiana and nationwide.  ​Her advocacy was born out

of need when her son had his first seizure in 2015 and was later diagnosed with idiopathic primary,

generalized Epilepsy.  Her advocacy has taken her into the boardroom, to the State legislative floor, and in

2018, her advocacy will take her to Washington DC. 

 

Among her efforts: 

  • Sara Stubblefield National Advocacy Award, Epilepsy Foundation of America - 2018

  • Indiana State Advocacy Leader, Epilepsy Foundation of America - 2017 to Current

  • Advisory Board Member, Epilepsy Foundation of Indiana - 2017 to Current

  • Member, Epilepsy Innovation Research Group - 2017 to Current

Dr. Bouchey has been asked to speak about matters related to Epilepsy in front of State legislators, as well as in the press.  Her comments are captured in the following articles and news segments over the last two years:
