Epilepsy Foundation of Eastern Pennsylvania
Our mission: to lead the fight to stop seizures, find a cure and overcome challenges created by epilepsy. We choose to fulfill that mission by meeting the non-medical needs for people affected by epilepsy/ seizure disorder to enhance their lives and build supportive communities.
We serve individuals and families affected by epilepsy/seizure disorders. Our primary areas of service include Philadelphia, Allentown, Wilkes-Barre, Scranton, and Lancaster. The combined population of our territory is over 6 million. The Center for Disease Control states that at least 1.65% of the population has epilepsy/seizure disorders. Thus, in the 18 counties we serve, 109,000 people have epilepsy. However, many more are significantly impacted by epilepsy in their daily lives when you include family members, caregivers, and friends in the total.
All of the Counties we serve: Berks, Bucks, Carbon, Chester, Delaware, Lackawanna, Lancaster, Lehigh, Luzerne, Monroe, Montgomery, Northampton, Philadelphia, Pike, Schuylkill, Susquehanna, Wayne, Wyoming
