Our Mission

"The Epilepsy Foundation of Connecticut leads the fight to overcome the challenges of living with epilepsy and to accelerate therapies to stop seizures, find cures and save lives."

Advocate for Epilepsy in Connecticut

Individuals with Epilepsy face unique obstacles to care including difficulty accessing proper medications, inflated cost of treatment, and limited state and federal resources. Through the Epilepsy Foundation of Connecticut’s dedicated network of Advocates and events such as our annual Advocacy Day, we’re determined to fight for key policy issues in both the State and Federal capacities.

We need your help! Join our growing force of Advocates and help us in our mission to create positive change in Connecticut and on Capitol Hill. Contact Michael Finley, CT Government Relations, at michael@epilepsyct.com to see how you can become an Advocate today.
