How we help

Epilepsy is not a rare condition. At least 3.4 million people in the United States live with seizures, including 470,000 children. Epilepsy Services of New Jersey continues to fight every day to improve the lives of residents impacted by epilepsy and their family caregivers.

Advocacy Alert!

Paul’s Law will require that all school personnel are trained in seizure first aid, and that school districts have an individualized seizure action plan for each student who has epilepsy.
