Our History
Established in 1948, the Epilepsy Foundation of Michigan is the only statewide nonprofit organization focusing on epilepsy.  The Foundation strives to provide a number of important tools, resources, and necessary support that have proven to be valuable in helping individuals understand epilepsy and seizures.

How we got started…

A group of individuals from the fields of medicine, education and public health came together in 1948 and decided to serve the need in Michigan for people with epilepsy.  They formed an organization that specialized and focused on this neurological condition, and now 60 years later, we at the Epilepsy Foundation of Michigan continue to fight and advocate for those with epilepsy with the same commitment and passion that characterized our founders.
