We are committed to giving people impacted by epilepsy the ability to successfully advocate for themselves and the epilepsy community. These advocates speak to the needs of people with epilepsy and share their personal stories so that local politicians understand the significance of the disorder and the need for their support.


Our Case Management team provides people living with epilepsy access to free professional counseling and assistance that will enhance their ability to cope with issues related to their medical condition and improve their quality of life.


Our organization provides free, age appropriate educational programs for students, teachers, nurses, and other school staff, as well as corporate offices, on seizure recognition and first aid. These programs help to minimize stigma and alleviate misconceptions related to epilepsy in the school environment, and the community as a whole.

The Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago

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