We recently met with Ryan Keys, Executive Director of Epilepsy Foundation Indiana, the local chapter headquartered in Indianapolis, to learn more about the organization. The mission of the Epilepsy Foundation is to lead the fight to overcome the challenges of living with epilepsy and to accelerate therapies to stop seizures, find cures, and save lives.
Laura Thrall, Epilepsy Foundation President and CEO has been guiding the organization to serve 3.4 million Americans living with epilepsy. Of those, 69,500 are living in Indiana and are actively served by Epilepsy Foundation Indiana.

As depicted above, Epilepsy Foundation Indiana serves the community in many ways. For families and individuals battling epilepsy, they offer support groups, trainings, camps, activities, ways to share testimonials, and local resources. The chapter offers free education, consultation and support for anyone affected by epilepsy to the best of their ability. For those seeking ways to get involved there are volunteer and advocacy opportunities.
Given COVID-19 there have been changes to the organization's event schedule and offering. Updated policies and procedures can be found on their website.
Epilepsy Foundation Indiana can be contacted by calling 800-332-1000 or my emailing [email protected].
