Community Education
Epilepsy Foundation of Michigan is committed to increasing awareness of epilepsy among professionals and the public. Community understanding and support can play a key role in improving the lives of people with epilepsy. This includes the ability to recognize different types of seizures and respond appropriately. It also includes recognizing that epilepsy can be a lot more than just seizures.
