Donate $26 and help us spread awareness

 

Together, we can do this. Until we find cures:

We can END epilepsy stigma and discrimination

We can END treatment delays

We can END misdiagnosis

We can END the isolation and depression associated with epilepsy

We can END the lack of epilepsy specialists and access to care

We can END SUDEP – Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy.


I will GIVE 26 to END EPILEPSY

 


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.

Epilepsy strikes regardless of age

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.
