The Epilepsy Foundation of Wisconsin has been working with our residents for over 40 years.  Our mission is to provide services and programs for individuals affected by seizures in order to overcome associated challenges, educate people on epilepsy and first aid, reduce stigma and to save lives.

The Foundation’s success is due to our staff, volunteers and board of directors.  Our Board of Directors is comprised of industry professionals, executives, and volunteers that strive to make a difference in the world of epilepsy.  Our board brings knowledge, expertise, enthusiasm and dedication to enhance our mission.  If you are interested in joining our board of directors please click on the link below.  Any questions may be directed to Curtis Deprey at
