Care

To deliver much-needed care to improve health and life outcomes for individuals and families affected by epilepsy, the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Los Angeles leads two efforts to END EPILEPSY: improving Specialty Care and providing Supportive Care.

 

 

Specialty Care

 

To improve access to and quality of specialty care in a region that is experiencing a shortage of specialists, the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Los Angeles facilitates the referral process and funds the training and work of new pediatric neurology/epilepsy specialists and epilepsy specialty care programs at major medical centers. Our "Care And Cure For Children" initiatives fight to END EPILEPSY by improving access to specialty care and by pursuing research for cures for childhood epilepsies. The intent is based on the fact that there are far too few pediatric epilepsy specialists in our region and there are still no cures for the epilepsies.
