About Us

Our Mission

Our mission is to lead the fight to overcome challenges of living with epilepsy and to accelerate therapies to stop seizures, find cures, and save lives.

 
 

The Epilepsy Foundation has expanded its reach in Southern California by creating The Epilepsy Foundation Greater Orange County with dedicated staff to serve the more than 77,000 people living with epilepsy in the Inland Empire, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Riverside, Orange, Mono, Tulare, Inyo, Kings and Kern Counties.

As the local chapter of the Epilepsy Foundation, we are leading the fight to END EPILEPSY® in Greater Orange County by supporting and mobilizing the epilepsy community through educational activities, direct services, advocacy, as well as research to accelerate therapies to stop seizures, find cures, and save lives. The Foundation also seeks to educate the general public to better understand epilepsy and seizure disorders, including knowing proper seizure first aid.
