Jose A. Valdez has been with the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago for over 9 years. Jose first came to us seeking services for which he was discriminated from his previous employer. After working with caseworkers on his situation for a little over a year, he won his discrimination lawsuit. He then began working with an EFGC employment service coordinator, and she found him to be a good candidate for a part-time position here at the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago. Not too long after beginning his part-time position, Jose was hired on as a full-time employee.
The Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago leads the fight to stop seizures, find a cure and overcome the challenges created by epilepsy.
