Publication: Esman Foundation to fund free seizure clinics

The Saul and Theresa Esman Foundation recently provided funding to help save our free West Palm Beach and Delray Beach free seizure clinics.  Due to county funding cuts, the clinics - running for over 35 years - were at risk of closing. Thanks to their generousity, hundreds of people with epilepsy can continue their medical care.  After losing her husband, Saul, after almost fifty years of marriage, Theresa Esman created the Foundation to fund a spectrum of work in diseases such as diabetes, Alzheimer's, cancer and, now, epilepsy.  Without the support of the Esman Foundation, the Epilepsy Foundation would have had to discontinue these vital clinics.  We can not thank them enough for their vision and kindness.

In recognition of their generosity and support, the Palm Beach clinic program will now be named “The Saul & Theresa Esman Foundation Clinic for Epilepsy & Seizure Treatment”.
