We all need to be educating everyone about epilepsy.

We all know how prevalent epilepsy is - in the U.S. alone, 1 in 26 people will develop epilepsy at some point in their lives.

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.

About Epilepsy Foundation Of Utah

Founded in 2011, the Epilepsy Alliance of Utah provided programs and services for people impacted by epilepsy.   In April 2016, the Alliance became a Chapter of the national Epilepsy Foundation.  The Epilepsy Foundation of Utah joins a strong national network and an organization that is the leading patient advocacy organization for people with epilepsy.

At the Epilepsy Foundation, one of our primary goals is to provide accessible, current information about epilepsy/seizure disorders to individuals with epilepsy, parents, family members and friends. We also provide information about epilepsy to professionals in the community through our in-service training programs.  Our professionally trained staff is available to answer questions about epilepsy and its related concerns.

Sites for Possible Transportation Services 

Are you or a loved one unable to drive due to the challenges of epilepsy and seizures? Looking to find a way to get around in your area? This Services Directory is a great statewide resource to assist in getting people with disabilities transportation to work, doctor's appointments, social events, and more. There are also programs included that provide transportation for those with disabilities who have no other means of accessing necessary specialized services and activities.

Let's get going!

UTA (Utah Transit Authority) also provides accessibility for those with disabilities, along with reduced fare for qualified people with disabilities.

Trying to figure out a ride to your doctor's appointment? LogistiCare Transportation can help you out! AND it's quite simple:

Book: Members, families, social workers, and health care professionals all book rides via the online registration portal or call centers. LogistiCare ensures eligibility and schedules the most appropriate transportation provider to meet their needs.

Ride: Drivers pick up members at their homes, take them to their appointments, and bring them home in a timely manner. If that ride doesn't happen to the member's satisfaction, we care, and will assign a staff member to help. More often than not, drivers go above and beyond their call of duty.
