We provide information, resources, and community referrals to people with epilepsy and their families.
Clinic to Community
A Clinic to Community Educator will provide you with the tools you need to make informed decisions as you begin to play a more active role in your own healthcare. You can meet with an Educator one-on-one or with your parents, family members, or friends – whichever would make you feel the most comfortable to freely ask questions and discuss your epilepsy.
This program covers topics including seizure management, seizure safety, driving, alcohol, school, and employment. Meetings include plenty of time for you to ask your questions and have a full discussion on the areas you are most concerned about.
We have a variety of family-friendly community events a few times a year, including craft workshops, baking, and games nights. See our events calendar for upcoming meetings or email Sandi to get notifications when new community events are scheduled.
