Abilities Network/Epilepsy Foundation of the Chesapeake Region, an affiliate of the Epilepsy Foundation of America, provides educational/referral information, advocacy, and support to people with epilepsy and their families. Our epilepsy education includes programs for school students, teachers and nurses, camps, employers, public and private organizations, police officers, medical professionals, and the community at large. Increasing awareness of epilepsy and seizures promotes a safer, more accepting environment for those living with this condition.
In an effort to combat the stigma that surrounds people affected by seizures, we offer a variety of educational programs. Our programs are designed to cover a wide range of topics on epilepsy that the general public may not understand.
