Epilepsy Awareness Month

November is Epilepsy Awareness Month! Let's use our voices to share our stories with the community.

Spread Awareness

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.
