Good morning from Epilepsy Foundation of Georgia’s 38th annual 2021 Magnolia Run. We’ve already met so many members of the Atlanta epilepsy community who are competing in today’s run/walk or cheering on family and friends.

We have special visitors at our booth today, some of the 409 seizure response dogs taught by Canine Assistants an amazing organization that UCB is proud to support. If you’re participating in the Magnolia Run, stop by to learn about how Canine Assistants helps people living with epilepsy with their seizure response dogs.

08/23/2021

Congratulations to Epilepsy Foundation of Georgia on hosting an incredible Magnolia Run! We are so proud to support EFGA and the valuable services it provides people and families affected by epilepsy.

Another organization that helps people living with epilepsy is Canine Assistants, which places seizure response dogs with people living with epilepsy. UCB is proud to sponsor these amazing dogs.

Epilepsy 101 will discuss how the transitions of college affect students with epilepsy, and the necessary lifestyle adjustments they will need to take to cope with epilepsy and seizures in their new environment. The program will address the influence that stress, sleep deprivation, alcohol and drugs, and other lifestyle changes in college have on seizures.

This educational program will consist of a presentation from an EFGA staff member or volunteer, as well as a brief look at proper seizure first aid and recognition.

If you are interested in scheduling an Epilepsy 101 session at your institute, please contact us at (404) 527-7155 or [email protected].

Epilepsy 101 is open to colleges and universities in the state of Georgia only. Download the Epilepsy 101 Guide for college students:https://epilepsyga.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/epilepsy101_handout.pdf

Welcome back to another round of Myth or Fact! ⁠

Seizures hurt?⁠

It's a myth! A person is unconscious and not in any pain during most seizures. Afterward, the patient could feel discomfort if they fall, have muscle aches, or bite their tongue (during a grand mal seizure).⁠

Featuring another #epilepsywarrior, Delaney!

After almost 10 years and 350+ seizures, Delaney is THREE YEARS seizure-free and has only had one in the last 3 years 🥳 It has been a crazy journey through middle school, high school, and college, full of unbelievable emotions. Her family is in awe of her strength and attitude through very trying times.

Delaney is so thankful to her family and friends that have supported her through it all. Additionally, she's blessed to have found the amazing Dr. Alwaki at Emory, who was determined to find answers for her. Her faith in prayer and God has never wavered.

She has helped so many people through their own journeys with epilepsy and is now thriving in her healthcare job doing what she loves. We are so proud of her warrior spirit!

Give Delaney some love 💜

General information

The Epilepsy Foundation of Georgia (EFGA) provides a number of programs and services, available to the nearly 150,000 Georgians living with epilepsy, as well as the general public. • Educational Programs EFGA provides free educational in-services on seizure recognition/first aid at schools, daycare centers, developmental disability facilities, senior centers and in the workplace. • Support Groups Living with a chronic condition is easier when you can share with others who are in a similar situation. The EFGA has 3 support groups meeting on a monthly basis throughout the state. We also offer online e-communities for those with transportation issues • Information and Referrals Understanding epilepsy can help to reduce fear and anxiety. We have a wide variety of materials on topics concerning epilepsy including types of epilepsy, treatment options, educational/legal rights and information for caregivers. We can also provide referrals to epilepsy specialists or other agencies that might provide a service not covered by EFGA. • Emergency Medication Fund Often people with epilepsy have no insurance coverage and limited financial resources. The EFGA has an emergency medication fund which will provide a one month supply of the seizure control medications per patient per calendar year. Patients are then provided with assistance in enrolling in one of the drug company sponsored medication assistance programs. • Camps All children should have the opportunity to enjoy the experience of summer camp. EFGA offers camps which are staffed with counselors trained in seizure recognition/first aid, and also a full-time medical staff. We also provide camp scholarships for children whose families have limited financial resources. • Advocacy Often times people with epilepsy face barriers in the workplace, in educational institutions and in the legal arena. EFGA works to advise its clients of their rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act and other laws. We also advocate for increased funding of epilepsy research through the National Institutes of Health. To learn more, call (800) 527-7105 or email [email protected]
