Education

Anywhere there’s people, there’s epilepsy. The mall, the movie theatre, the office. Maybe even your own home. The potential for epilepsy – and a seizure – is literally everywhere we are.

And most often it’s those present during a seizure who need to offer help. With proper knowledge and skills, anyone can assist with a seizure – even you!

But too often people are limited by misunderstanding and fear. Our solution to this stigma is education.

THE IMPORTANCE OF EDUCATION

We are committed to providing epilepsy-related knowledge and skills to any community or organization interested. Our 45-60 minute sessions can be custom designed to meet your specific needs. Our times are flexible and we are ready to organize one or more no-cost sessions for your group.
