Erick Gordon, SAFE representative, helps present a donation of 110 caps to the MUSC Neurophysiology department.  The caps are used for patients scheduled for both inpatient and outpatient EEG's.

South Carolina Advocates For Epilepsy devotes its energy to passionately advocating for members of the epilepsy community.


Vital components to improving the quality of life for all epilepsy patients include our commitment to raising the level of awareness in our state, removing the stigma often associated with seizures and epilepsy, teaching seizure first-aid throughout our communities and providing educational opportunities and social activities to all our members.
