The Epilepsy Foundation Greater Chicago promotes education and awareness about epilepsy in 43 counties. Our goal is to help everyone understand what a seizure looks like and what to do if they see someone having a seizure. The more everyone talks about epilepsy, the less people living with the condition have to fear discrimination, worry about receiving improper first aid, or keep their epilepsy hidden in the shadows.
Seizures impact their lives in many ways including creating barriers to employment and education and facing a sense of discrimination and isolation from their peers who donʼt understand what happens when they see a seizure occur.
Please join our Epilepsy Advocates of Central Illinois and learn how they are breaking down barriers and "seizing the narrative back from epilepsy!" Let's Talk About It!
