The Epilepsy Foundation provides a range of educational opportunities, programs and services for people living with epilepsy, families, and friends.
Many programs and services are available and implemented through our network of affiliates and are often tailored to the communities they serve. Other services are offered from the national office, such as national policy and legal advocacy efforts, research, public awareness and outreach, and training programs for selected health care professionals and community caregivers.
For more information, please look around this section of the website, call the national office 24/7 at 1-800-332-1000, or contact your local Epilepsy Foundation affiliate.
