Episode 10: Adventurers Talk Epilepsy


We’ve heard from people with epilepsy how they seize adventure. Now it’s time to put some adventurers on the spot. 


I talk to three people who work within the adventure field to find out what they know about epilepsy, what they don’t, and how we can get more people with epilepsy in adventure.


We mention:

  1. These three adventure professionals’ first aid and epilepsy experience

  2. How they handle risk assessments

  3. The different types of seizure

  4. Basic epilepsy first aid

  5. How to encourage people with epilepsy to take part in adventure

  6. What adventure means to them

  7. Where to go to learn more about epilepsy
