Community Education and Public Awareness:
First Aid/Action Plan  Seizures Training

In fulfilling our duty of creating public awareness and community education, the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Southern Illinois has intensified efforts to educating the public about issues of epilepsy. The training includes first aid response and action plan to effectively responding to episodes of seizures at the work place, at school, at public places and even at home.

We provide up to date epilepsy education for individuals and families. We offer free education programs in schools for students and staff. We also offer free education programs to businesses, organizations, and professionals. The police academy is also a place we frequent our efforts to offer law enforcement training in epilepsy for the police force as a proper way of responding to people who are experiencing seizures.
We attend health fairs in the Greater Southern Illinois area and even beyond. We have the opportunity to provide epilepsy/seizure education at the health fairs on seizure management.
