What we're about
Empowering Epilepsy was founded in Cleveland, Ohio by people with epilepsy, for people with epilepsy. Meet others who understand epilepsy, learn strategies to manage your seizures, and make new friends.
We hold a variety of events, including a virtual support groups, a parent support group, and 5 separate age based support groups. Our age based support groups include an hour of Q & A with an epilepsy specialist from a Level 4 Epilepsy Center, and an hour of talk time. Our in person events take place in Cleveland, Akron and Youngstown.
We also hold an annual Empowering Epilepsy: Empower Your Life Conferences that features some of the top epilepsy specialists in the country better educating people living with epilepsy, their family, and the general public about epilepsy and seizures.
We hold a monthly in person support group at the Fairlawn Kiwanis Community Center, a Purple Day Bowling Party in March, and a Pottery Painting Party in November.
