Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Counseling, Education, Educational Services, Epilepsy, Health, Mental Health, Voluntary Health Associations & Medical Disciplines

Mission: LAB Epilepsy Research Group was founded by three educated, intractable "epileptics". We have each lived with epilepsy for the past 30 years and feel the time has come for all people with epilepsy to not have to be ashamed or feel guilty about their epilepsy. We are working to "Facilitate The Acceptance Of Epilepsy" (TM) through various inservices in the community, teaching people how to best handle a seizure without shaming the person and without costing them unnecessary trips to the emergency room. We also facilitate an epilepsy support group that currently meets once a month. This is the first place many people meet another person with epilepsy and realize they "are not alone". We have published three "update letters" to date that discuss living with and accepting epilepsy to make life a little better.

We are available to anyone who is interested in learning more about epilepsy.
