a map of the United States with dots that represent the locations of epilepsy centers that are members of the National Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC). Most states have at least one NAEC epilepsy center, and some large cities have multiple centers (e.g., New York, Los Angeles). There is a higher concentration of centers east of the Mississippi River, and there are a few states without epilepsy centers, including Alaska, Montana, North Dakota, Oklahoma, and South Dakota. A complete directory of epilepsy centers can be found on the NAEC™s website: www.naec-epilepsy.org
