The Epilepsy Foundation of Florida (EFOF) leads the fight to stop seizures, find a cure and overcome challenges created by epilepsy. EFOF was established in 1971 as a not-for-profit 501(C) (3). EFOF is Florida’s sole licensee of the National Epilepsy Foundation,offering services to the estimated 375,000 Floridians with epilepsy/seizure disorders and their families.
Services include medical care, prevention and education, case management, psychological evaluations and counseling, support groups, children’s camps and family week-end retreats, and advocacy for persons with epilepsy.
Project Access is a national initiative funded by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau of the Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA) to improve access to coordinated,comprehensive care for children and youth with epilepsy in medically underserved and rural areas. State agencies, health care providers, schools, and other community organizations work together to increase awareness and connect families to available resources through community-based service systems.
EFOF is proud to be one of six grantees implementing this program throughout the nation.
