One in 26 will develop epilepsy sometime in their lives. The Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota (EFMN) welcomes and serves every person affected by epilepsy. We are committed to eliminating barriers, creating inclusion, and supporting all within our communities.
We acknowledge and appreciate all the ways in which people differ, and encourage individual differences in perspective and identity.
We strive to provide opportunity and access for all people, giving special attention to the needs of those facing significant barriers and health inequities.
We actively invite the contribution and participation of all groups and individuals, embracing differences and offering respect for all people.
