As part of our commitment to patients and to further the understanding of severe diseases, UCB supports a number of programs for patients and their families. These varied programs include mentoring projects, sponsorship programs, informative Web sites and scholarships, all of which work toward improving the quality of life for those affected by severe diseases.
Seizure response dogs immediately change lives for their owners, but their extensive training can take up to 18 months.
That's why Canine Assistants work together with The Epilepsy CompanyTM, UCB, in the training of every dog. Their partnership ensures that each dog gets the extensive training that it needs, and that more needs of the epilepsy community are met.

Epilepsy Advocates are people living with epilepsy and caregivers who have refused to compromise and sought the best treatment for controlling their seizures with minimal side effects.
By sharing their personal success stories online and within local communities, Epilepsy Advocate strives to inspire people to interact with other people with epilepsy, learn from one another and make positive changes in each other's lives. It's their personal commitment to make a difference in their community and themselves.
