About epilepsy

Our Guiding Philosophy:

Educate

Seizure trainings for your school, workplace, and community at no cost.

Connect

No one should face epilepsy alone; meet people who understand what you’re going through.

Empower

Take back control with access to the information and advice you need.

Camp Oz 2019 – Day 2

The first full day of Camp Oz is in the books, and it was great! Cooler overcast weather with occasional peaks of sun gave us a nice breezy day for being outside. Campers had rotating cabin activities for the day – 2 blocks in the morning and 2 blocks in
