The Epilepsy Foundation of Western Ohio 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.

EFWO is an independently incorporated affiliate of the national office of the Epilepsy Foundation.

In addition to a small staff, the Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors. Together, they work to improve the lives of those in our area living with epilepsy and their families.
