The Managing Epilepsy Well (MEW) Network is a team of people who care about the health of people with epilepsy. MEW Network members come from U.S. universities, community-based organizations and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We work together to promote epilepsy self-management research and improve the quality of life for people with epilepsy.

The MEW Network was established in 2007 with support from the CDC Epilepsy Program and Prevention Research Centers' Program (PRCs) .The MEW Network conducts research together with community leaders (such as local Epilepsy Foundation affiliates), and shares findings with the epilepsy community.  Our goal is to develop and test self-management programs and tools for people with epilepsy and healthcare providers.
