Epilepsy Foundation Hawaii
The Epilepsy Foundation of Hawaii (EFH) provides direct services to individuals with seizure disorders and those touched by epilepsy. It is estimated that over 15,000 Hawaii residents suffer from epilepsy and over 75,000 residents of Hawaii are touched by epilepsy in some way. For over 30 years the Epilepsy Foundation of Hawaii has provided information and educational services to individuals and groups with questions pertaining to epilepsy and other seizure disorders.
The Epilepsy Foundation of Hawaii is a private, nonprofit agency, whose mission is to increase public awareness of epilepsy and to build a sense of community, thereby enabling people with epilepsy to participate fully in the community at large.
Based in Honolulu, Oahu, the Epilepsy Foundation of Hawaii continues to have liaisons on the big island of Hawaii and Maui who allow our resources to be shared across the state. The Epilepsy Foundation of Hawaii works closely with Comprehensive Epilepsy Center located at Queen’s Medical Center in Honolulu, where patients with epilepsy have easy access to a full spectrum of evaluation and treatment options.
One of the signature events at the Epilepsy Foundation of Hawaii is the Hot Topics in Epilepsy. Every second Wednesday of the month, a group meets for a presentation and led discussion on any number of hot topics in epilepsy, ranging from legal rights, to caregivers, to how we’re doing as patients.
The Epilepsy Foundation of Hawaii fights every day to live out the mission statement “The Epilepsy Foundation leads the fight to stop seizures, find a cure and overcome the challenges created by epilepsy.”
