Mission Statement

The Epilepsy Association of Utah is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for all individuals living with epilepsy and seizure disorders.

Description

The Epilepsy Association of Utah is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide support services for people living with epilepsy, educate the community about epilepsy and assist in raising funds for research.

Since 1973, The Association has worked tirelessly to enhance communication with the community, assuring people living with epilepsy no longer have to live in fear that: their seizures will be joked about,they will be discriminated against and/or they are the only ones with the condition. Currently, 106,000 people in Utah have a diagnosis of epilepsy and, it is estimated, this number will increase significantly as the population ages.

The Association holds several fundraisers, an educational conference, support groups, a camp for teens with epilepsy, Seizure Smart complimentary training, and many other events to help raise awareness throughout the year.
