EPILEPSY FOUNDATION OF FLORIDA INC Overview
Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: help us at any of our events throughout Florida. We have 9 Walks in the Spring and have multiple events throughout the year along with Health Fairs and Support Groups.
Programs: EFOF flagship programs, the Epilepsy Medical Services Program and the Case Management Program, provide individuals with access to a continuum of high-quality medical services, including neurological evaluations and follow-ups, electroencephalographs (EEGs) and blood testing to establish baseline conditions as well as ongoing neurological services semi-annually or annually, as needed by individual program participants. Medical case management includes regular blood monitoring to measure the efficacy of Anti-Epileptic Drugs (AEDs), imaging services (MRIs, etc.), medical counseling and referrals. The program has a verifiable track record of reducing the number of seizures as well as seizure related Emergency Room visits.
We gave away almost 50,000 bicycle helmets across the state to prevent head injury.
