CURE Epilepsy PSA Airing on ESPN

Thursday, July 20, 2023 - Wednesday, August 2, 2023



CURE Epilepsy celebrates our 25th anniversary as the leading nonprofit dedicated to finding a cure for epilepsy through research with a public service announcement (PSA) set to air on ESPN this summer during The Basketball Tournament.

The PSA features photos and video footage of fifteen people living with epilepsy or who have tragically lost their lives to the disorder. The intent of the thirty-second ad is to highlight the heterogeneity of epilepsy, inspire urgency to advance science, and raise awareness of CURE Epilepsy by showing real people impacted by this common neurological disorder.

Watch the PSA live during an upcoming basketball game. The PSA will air during the following games:

  • Thursday 7/20, 7PM EST, ESPN2
