    "In late 1994, the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP) within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) convened a group of experts representing the epilepsy treatment and advocacy communities to help the agency shape a public health agenda for epilepsy. This approach, informed by the core functions and building on CDC's work with other chronic diseases and conditions, led to Living Well with Epilepsy, the first national conference on public health and epilepsy." - p. 1
