About Epilepsy Foundation Alabama

The Epilepsy Foundation of Alabama seeks to improve the quality of life for individuals with epilepsy and seizures.

In 1971 to raise awareness about epilepsy, a group of interested individuals in Mobile, Alabama established and charted the Epilepsy Chapter of Mobile and the Gulf Coast. Lee Brown, herself a seizure patient spearheaded the group. The group was concerned with fair treatment and providing services to individuals with seizure disorders.

In 2008 the Epilepsy Chapter became the Epilepsy Foundation of Alabama. The name change reflects the increase in coverage (to all 67 Alabama counties) and services to people with epilepsy, their families and caregivers throughout the State of Alabama. The Epilepsy Foundation of Alabama is the only epilepsy affiliate in the State of Alabama.

The Epilepsy Foundation of Alabama enjoys a long standing relationship with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and was invited to implement the Public Relations for the opening of the Mobile office EEOC established the affiliate as an EEOC Partner.

The Epilepsy Foundation of Alabama has piloted the majority of the National Epilepsy Foundation Programs on law enforcement, teens, school nurses, and employment which the national office continues to use. These programs are obtained through the competitive grants process to obtain and administer the programs. Results of these programs are published in “Epilepsy Across the Spectrum” National Epilepsy Foundation publication.
