Our Mission

Our mission is to lead the fight to overcome the challenges of living with epilepsy and to accelerate therapies to stop seizures, find cures, and save lives.

Festival of Trees at the Indiana Historical Society

The Epilepsy Foundation has set up a tree to help raise awareness of the 69,500 Hoosiers that have epilepsy and the fact that 1 in 26 people will have epilepsy in their lifetime.  We have a tree full of Hoosiers that have shared their epilepsy story to raise awareness of how common epilepsy is and it effects everyone differently.   

Free Day December 7th - Please join us as our guest our guests at 9:30 AM for early entry to the Festival of Trees - Epilepsy Foundation Guests can enter the Atrium and check out the trees in that area.  At 9:45 we will get a special large group photo on the steps of the atrium to recognize our participation in the Festival.  Any Kids Crew members that come or any kids that come and sign up to be Kids Crew members for free will get drawstring backpacks and other give away items. We will also have the petition available to sign to help make the Epilepsy License plates available in Indiana.  Please consider signing if you are 18 or older.

Seizure Safe School Act

Indiana Governor Signs Bill Championed By Epilepsy Foundation Of Indiana Mandating Training Of School Personnel On Seizure First Aid

The Epilepsy Foundation of Indiana is proud to announce the passing of theSeizure Safe School Act, which makes certain that school personnel, nurses, teachers and volunteers are able to recognize and respond appropriately to a student experiencing a seizure.

There are three components to the legislation: 

1. Requiring school personnel to complete a seizure recognition and first-aid response training 

2. Mandating that the Seizure Action Plan is made part of the student's file and made available to school personnel and volunteers responsible for the student 

3. Ensuring that any FDA-approved medication prescribed by the treating physician is administered to the student living with epilepsy 

If you are interested in setting up a school training at your school, please contact aedwards@efa.org
