The Epilepsy Foundation-Greater Dayton Region is committed to ensuring all people with seizures are able to participate in all life experiences; and will prevent, control and cure epilepsy through research, education, advocacy and services. It was established in 1974 by Joan Schreck of Kettering.
Our service area is 11 counties in western Ohio-Auglaize, Champaign, Clark, Darke, Greene, Logan, Mercer, Miami, Montgomery, Preble and Shelby counties.
We are a chapter of the Epilepsy Foundation of America. The Foundation is committed to assuring we serve the local epilepsy community.
In addition to a small staff, the local chapter has an Advisory Board, made up of local people who are about our mission. Together, we work to improve the lives of those in our area living with epilepsy and their families.
