What Encephalitis Is and How We’re Helping
Encephalitis, an inflammation of the brain, affects about 20,000 Americans annually.
Those who survive its assault are often left with permanent brain injury, requiring expert medical treatment and skilled professional rehabilitation.
Survivors’ residual symptoms are varied, life-altering and costly, leaving them and their loved ones changed forever.
Encephalitis411’s mission is to improve the quality of life for those impacted by encephalitis. We have a 3-pronged approach to achieve this through research, awareness and advocacy. Physicians across multiple disciplines at major institutions back this nonprofit, to provide an unmet need for clinicians and patients in the U.S.
Encephalitis411 seeks to increase awareness and advance research of this life-threatening, life-altering brain disorder.
This 501(c)(3) organization also aims to advocate for those impacted by encephalitis, resulting in early diagnosis and best possible treatment outcomes. We are working closely with medical professionals from highly esteemed medical institutions such as Johns Hopkins, Kaiser Permanente, the National Institutes of Health, Cleveland Clinic, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Mayo Clinic, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and Brown University. Together, we aim to improve the ability for clinicians to be equipped to diagnose earlier, to offer the best possible treatment outcomes, and to provide hope.
