Who we are
Epilepsy Life Links provides a comprehensive array of supports and life-improvement opportunities for persons diagnosed with epilepsy and seizure disorders. The aim of our epilepsy advocacy group is to improve the quality of life and care for people of all ages who suffer epileptic seizures and associated symptoms and complications of epilepsy. Our programs focus on the physical and mental well-being of persons with epilepsy by promoting education, accessibility to health care, peer communication, and a sense of community. We developed these programs with the epilepsy patient in mind, and are accessible to caregivers and healthcare providers.
To cultivate a comprehensive support system for children and adults with all types of epilepsy diagnoses and symptoms that arise as a consequence through collaboration with a network of advocacy groups, regionally, nationally, and internationally. Our collective goal will be to assist epilepsy patients everywhere in becoming fully woven into the fabric of society.
