The Epilepsy Foundation Eastern PA is leading the fight to end epilepsy and overcome challenges created by seizures by focusing on education, support and advocacy. We offer a range of free services and programs to improve the quality of life and empower those who are affected by epilepsy and their caregivers. We also support research to accelerate cures for the epilepsies, support the training and work of new pediatric neurology/epilepsy specialists, and also seek to educate the general public – those that work with, care for, serve, do business with, educate or encounter people with epilepsy during their daily lives – to better understand epilepsy/seizure disorders.
Key programs include but are not limited to Community Education & Outreach, Epilepsy Educational Conferences & Workshops, Seizure Training and Recognition Programs, Legal & Medical Referrals, Children & Family Services, Adult Resource Services, Young Adult Initiatives and Camp Achieve. We serve individuals and families affected by epilepsy/seizure disorders. Our primary areas of service include Philadelphia, Allentown, Wilkes-Barre, Scranton, and Lancaster.
