Epilepsy Foundation Nebraska



About Us!

Nearly 20,000 Nebraskans live with epilepsy. Therefore, as a chapter of the National Epilepsy Foundation, we work to provide programs and services to people and families of Nebraska impacted by epilepsy. We are committed to leading the fight to overcome the challenges of epilepsy and to accelerate therapies to stop seizures, find cures, and save lives right here in Nebraska.

Our chapter was founded in 2018, and since then we have been dedicated to positively impacting the lives of our local Nebraskans living with epilepsy. We offer many programs such as our support groups, educational seminars, information and referral, and advocacy, all of which are free of charge.

Look at our Nebraska eventsandprograms for more information.

Please don’t hesitate to get involved, contact us, or ask questions. We are here to serve you!
