Thank you for supporting the Epilepsy Foundation Utah!

 

About us

In April 2016, the Epilepsy Alliance of Utah merged with the Epilepsy Foundation of America to become the Epilepsy Foundation Utah.  We are an advocate and a leader in the education and support for individuals and families affected by Epilepsy.  
 

Each year, we host events that raise awareness, promote advocacy , provide resources, and support groups for those throughout Utah who have epilepsy.  
 

Yearly, we train more than 1500 individuals, some of these are fire, police, educators, students, general public, and families dealing with Epilepsy.  They learn about the different types of Epilepsy, the proper first aid treatment and how to support those suffering from a seizure.
