Gayle Guynup has been elected to the board of directors of JoshProvides Epilepsy Assistance Foundation, Inc. The former editor of Style magazine and the social editor at Herald-Tribune Media Group, Guynup recently established a new communications company, Content Connections, which offers corporate communications for both profit and nonprofit organizations, web-based communications, traditional media and memoirs/biographies.
“I am thrilled to join the JoshProvides Board. Having lived with epilepsy for more than 40 years, I am anxious to help spread the word that epilepsy does not define who we are, but rather is something we have and learn to live with,” Guynup says.
One in 26 people are impacted by epilepsy. In 2018, JoshProvides assisted 59 families, offering seizure detection and alert devices, asisting with transportation or medical services, and securing seizure response dogs. JoshProvides also offers a monthly epilepsy support group for families.
