Change Agent is a recognition program that enables people living with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS) to nominate people in their lives who have made a positive impact. The program aims to celebrate and honor the people whose positive actions and/or behavior benefit families living with LGS and promote acceptance, compassion, and kindness toward the LGS community at large.

A Change Agent can be almost anyone, within the following parameters:

  • Must be a person (sorry, no service animals)
  • Must be at least 18 years of age or older
  • Must be a resident of the United States
  • Must be nominated because of the positive impact he or she made/makes in the lives of a family affected by Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS)

Complete the online nomination form on this website. The person you nominate will receive an email from the Change Agent program once the nomination form is complete, so please have their email address ready to enter when you fill out the form.

Those Change Agents who are selected to be featured will be asked to provide their consent; otherwise, there is no additional action or obligation. While the people nominated did not seek this praise, simply agreeing to be recognized as a Change Agent helps to raise awareness about Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS). Change Agents serve as examples of how compassion and thoughtful actions can be especially meaningful in the lives of people living with rare diseases, like LGS.

Anyone who is successfully nominated online will receive a congratulatory Change Agent certificate and the acknowledgement that he or she has made a difference in the life of someone who is living with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS). Additionally, each month a Change Agent will be selected to be featured on the Change Agent website and Facebook. Featured Change Agents will be contacted for their approval before being featured. 

Yes, you can submit more than one Change Agent nomination. You will be required to complete the online form for each nomination.

No. Participation in the Change Agent program is free.

The Change Agent program is sponsored by Lundbeck, a global pharmaceutical company dedicated to improving the lives of people affected by neurologic conditions, such as Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS).

LGS stands for Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, a complex, rare, and severe type of epilepsy.
