Epilepsy Support & Education Services, formerly known as LAB Epilepsy Research Group, is the state's only epilepsy nonprofit organization, and holds support groups for people with epilepsy as well as their family members. We are also involved in educating the general public about epilepsy and it's effects on the lives of those living with it. Our goal is to "facilitate the acceptance of epilepsy" because we realize a cure is a long way off, and those of us living with epilepsy need the opportunity to live our lives as fully as possible in the meantime. All the board members are individuals living with epilepsy, and know it's impact on life from first hand experience. We are trying to work closely with our local physicians to provide services to people who are diagnosed with epilepsy. We have had our first walk and are already planning on the second walk for 2013 to continue to raise awareness of epilepsy in the community.
