Epilepsy Foundation Georgia
The Epilepsy Foundation of Georgia (EFGA) is the only health agency in Georgia dedicated to serving more than 110,000 Georgians living with active epilepsy statewide. The foundation seeks to improve the quality of life for people with epilepsy and their families through community education activities for all age levels and comprehensive set of client service programs. The foundation also reaches out to the community at large to reduce the stigma that is often attached to epilepsy and educate the public on seizure recognition and first aid.

EFGA helps to coordinate and share the support groups meeting on a monthly basis throughout the state for both children and adults.

EFGA's emergency medication fund can provide a one month supply of seizure control medications per patient per calendar year. We also provide assistance in enrolling in drug company sponsored medication assistance programs and other assistance programs.
