I am Director of the Comprehensive Epilepsy Program at Cadence Health and have worked with the EFA of Chicago for many years. This organization has served a pivotal role in the care of countless people. Epilepsy is medical condition that often carries signficant social challenges and the EFA has been there to help with their support. I regularly provide an abundance of material that the Foundation provides to my patients and direct them frequently to the Foundation's resources. The many support groups the EFA has throughout Chicago land offer easy access for people with epilepsy to find additional support. The EFA also has been a consistent provider of educational initiatives to consumers through northest Il.
