Epilepsy Foundation Alaska

EF Alaska
Over 6,000 People in Alaska are Living with Epilepsy

The Epilepsy Foundation Alaska provides programs and services that support people and families impacted by epilepsy. With the strength of a national organization and network of epilepsy experts, EFAK provides national scope and local impact.


From ground breaking research to SUDEP support, local educational programs and a 24/7 Helpline, Epilepsy Foundation Alaska is here to serve you.


We are leading the fight to END EPILEPSY® in Alaska by supporting and mobilizing the epilepsy community through educational activities, direct services, advocacy, as well as research to accelerate therapies to stop seizures, find cures, and save lives. The Foundation also seeks to educate the general public to better understand epilepsy and seizure disorders, including knowing proper seizure first aid.

Over the course of multiple weekly sessions, participants develop coping and goal-setting strategies that improve overall and discrete aspects of quality of life, epilepsy self-management, and address anxiety and depression. The program’s structure has been validated by randomized, controlled trials in multiple states. Its framework and curriculum, delivered via facilitated group sessions, is proven effective.
