Epilepsy Foundation of wisconsin's mission
Serving the people of Wisconsin since 1981, the Epilepsy Foundation of Wisconsin leads the fight to overcome the challenges of living with epilepsy and to accelerate therapies to stop seizures, find cures, and save lives.
As a non-profit charitable organization, we exist to increase public awareness and understanding of a neurological disorder that affects over 3 million Amercians, with more than 100,000 in Wisconsin.
Epilepsy affects 3 millions Americans and 50 million people worldwide, but the lives of family members, friends, co-workers are also deeply affected. The goal of the Epilepsy Foundation of Wisconsin is to help you understand more about the neurological disorder and to share with you the new treatments available while providing programs and services to the public. We offer services for families, schools, employers and public health workers that engage and educate individuals in order to raise awareness and reduce the stigmas and myths associated with seizures and epilepsy.
