Magnolia Paws for Compassion®
Magnolia Paws for Compassion® is a special program, created by Eisai Inc., in partnership with the Epilepsy Foundation and 4 Paws for Ability, which seeks to increase access to animal assistance and raise awareness of the many benefits that service and therapy dogs can provide to those coping with an illness, such as epilepsy or a seizure disorder. Magnolia Paws for Compassion embodies Eisai's hhc mission by involving our employees in fundraising to support animal assistance and encouraging them to have their own pets trained as therapy dogs. Once trained, they spend time with patients, helping to alleviate some of the emotional and physical stresses associated with illness, while also gaining an understanding of the patient's journey to help inform and motivate their work.

Child Neurology Foundation & Transitions of Care
Transition of care is a process for young adults to maintain access to medical care in order to attain life-long functioning and well-being as they transition from pediatric to adult health care. To help address the challenges associated with the transition process, Eisai co-sponsored the development of a consensus statement in 2016 by the Child Neurology Foundation and endorsed by American Academy of Neurology, Child Neurology Society and American Academy of Pediatrics.

Whether you’re on prescription treatment or not, breakthrough convulsive seizures can happen, causing significant risks.
