The Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome (LGS) Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of individuals impacted by LGS through advancing research, awareness, education, and family support.
Executive Director of the LGS Foundation Dr. Tracy Dixon-Salazar sits down with us to discuss their “Finding the Cures Together” program to support patient families navigating their LGS journey.
