  The Epilepsy Foundation of Florida (EFOF) will be kicking its November Epilepsy Awareness activities with its annual  LUNDBECK SERIES EVENT,“Let’s Talk About It."

These events are design to raise awareness and support for the foundation. Attending any of the below functions will help create awareness for epilepsy. The Lunbeck series events are constructed to inform the public on triggers of seizures, type of seizures, epilepsy and safety, and how to manage your epilepsy.

 According to the March 2012, Institute of Medicine Report, 1 in 26 people will develop epilepsy in their lifetime. The Epilepsy Foundation of Florida is a high value charity at 91%, meaning $0.91 of every $1.00 goes directly to program costs.  You can ensure that your donations will be put to great use and make an impact in the lives of people with epilepsy and our community.  Please help make a difference and join us this October. Currently, more than 2.5 million Americans live with epilepsy.
