Seizure Recognition and First Aid Certification hosted by the Epilepsy Foundation (Separate Registration Required)

Sunday, October 25, 2020
11 am to 12:30 pm MT

(Please note that the time listed from Noon to 2:30 pm MT is incorrect and will be updated by APHA soon.)

Epilepsy is the fourth most common neurological problem, but diagnosis and treatment are often delayed. In the past year, 56% of people living with epilepsy (PWE) reported having seizures. Only 1 out of 3 PWE are being treated by a specialist, which highlights epilepsy-related disparities. Many people do not know what to do when a person has a seizure. This can lead to adverse outcomes. Public health professionals encounter PWE in multiple health settings. The Seizure Recognition and First Aid Training provides skills to recognize seizures and safely help someone during a seizure. Certification is valid for a two-year period.

Pre-registration required


1.     Each person must pre-register for the live training.

2.     Complete a pre-assessment prior to the training.

3.     Attend the live training.

4.     Retrieve the post-assessment passcode at the end of the training.

5.     Complete a post-assessment after the training.

6.     Retrieve the certificate of completion after passing the post-assessment. The certificate can be saved and/or printed before closing the assessment page. The certificate will be automatically emailed as well.

The Atlantic Fellows for Equity in Brian Health program at the Global Brain Health Institute (GBHI) provides innovative training in brain health, leadership, and dementia prevention to a wide range of promising leaders from various disciplines including the arts, business, economics, law, journalism, medicine, public health, policy, and technology. Atlantic Fellows focus on working compassionately with people in vulnerable and underserved communities to improve brain health outcomes and promote the creation of a fairer, healthier, and more inclusive society for all.

Applicants should demonstrate a commitment to brain health and health care policy, as well as an ability to implement effective interventions in local communities and a desire to become a regional leader in brain health, with the goal of reducing the scale and impact of dementia around the world.

The Medicaid and CHIP Payment and Access Commission (MACPAC), a non-partisan legislative branch agency that advises the U.S. Congress on Medicaid and CHIP policy issues, is seeking an analyst. In particular, we are seeking someone with prior Medicaid or CHIP experience who is also:

  • skilled in policy analysis including identifying important policy questions, marshaling evidence from multiple sources, and developing policy options;
  • able to effectively communicate orally and in writing, translating technical information into clear and concise information for lay audiences;
  • able to produce work that is objective and non-partisan; and
  • able to balance multiple tasks and work under deadlines, both independently and in collaboration with other team members.

A graduate degree in health policy, health services research, public policy, public health, or other related field and at least five years of policy experience are desirable.

While the MACPAC team is currently teleworking, qualified candidates should be ready to work in our office in downtown Washington, DC in 2021. Salary competitive with those in other federal agencies, and commensurate with experience. We offer federal employee health and retirement benefits.
