Reaching Out

South Carolina Advocates For Epilepsy has devoted its energy to passionately advocating for the members of the epilepsy community.  Raising the level of awareness in South Carolina, removing the stigma often associated with seizures and epilepsy, and teaching seizure first-aid are vital to improving the quality of life for all patients diagnosed with epilepsy.
