It can be hard to make new friends in the best of times; finding people who understand your individual journey with epilepsy can be especially tough. The Epilepsy Foundation’s social events seek to bring together all types of people affected by epilepsy to connect, share experiences, and (most importantly) have some fun!
Events happen throughout the year and vary by region according to local needs. Our largest social event of the year is the United in Epilepsy Regional Walk, which happens in multiple locations across our service area in August and September. Visit the Events Calendar to see all upcoming events in your area.

Change can come at any point in life, and for Bob Greer, there have been many moments of unexpected change. Shortly after getting married Bob was drafted into the Army, and more recently he was diagnosed with epilepsy at the age of 73. With no known cause for his recent seizures and diagnosis, Bob used EFMN’s Information Services and Connect Groups to learn about treatments and how others manage their epilepsy.Bob's Story
Another way to meet people and find support are through Connect Groups: regular meetings that bring together people with similar epilepsy connections.Learn More
