Meet Our National Walk Chair, Alan Strauss

Alan Strauss, a retired international telecom executive, will serve as the 2017 National Chair. Alan’s son Nicholas, a 21-year-old senior at Penn State University, was diagnosed with epilepsy at the age of 18 as a high school senior.  While Nicholas is currently on medication, he still has seizures every 8 weeks or so.  

In this role, Alan will help the Epilepsy Foundation increase participation and fundraising for the Annual National Walk for Epilepsy. In partnership with the National Epilepsy Foundation, Alan will serve as leader of the National Walk for Epilepsy focused on raising revenue and increasing awareness.
