Your patients receive amazing care because YOU specifically understand

epilepsy and seizures.

Thank you for all you do!

Outside of your office, people with epilepsy have to live with seizures in a world that does not completely understand this debilitating, chronic disease. 

  • The general public is rarely educated about the over 40 different types of seizures and syndromes. 

  • They do not know how to help when a seizure takes place. 

  • Seizures are often mistaken for intoxication or drug use.

  • While we are on prescribed medications, we often have to deal with debilitating side effects. 

  • If our seizures are not controlled, we lose our independence, our jobs, and end up feeling isolated and alone. 

 

There is so much more to epilepsy than "just the seizures." 

What We Do: 

Akron Group.jpg

Empowering Epilepsy enables people with epilepsy to take charge of their lives by connecting them to experts and peers for education, care, support, and fun, family-friendly events at every age and stage. Founded by people with epilepsy, for people with epilepsy, we personally understand the struggles of living with seizures and want to help find ways to empower the lives of your patients. This gives them the chance of better controlling their seizures sooner.

 

Epilepsy Specialists can help by referring patients to Empowering Epilepsy to learn more about our programs and services. 

 

We offer free age-based virtual support groups that consist of an hour of Q & A with an epilepsy specialist, and an hour of talk time with others in their age group living with epilepsy. This allows people with epilepsy and their loved ones to ask any general questions about epilepsy and seizures, meet others living with epilepsy, and realize they are not alone.
