2022 Epilepsy Connect Symposium

Saturday, February 26, 2022 from 9 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. MT. The symposium will be virtual, and a Zoom link will be sent to you prior to the event.

The Epilepsy Foundation of Colorado and Wyoming strives to connect, educate, and empower our community to improve the lives of those who are impacted by epilepsy. The symposium is designed for people with epilepsy, caregivers, and healthcare providers, and will offer education on a wide variety of topics.

Learn more about topics and presenters and register for the symposium.


 

It is estimated that 1 in 26 people will be diagnosed with epilepsy during his or her lifetime.  The CDC estimates that there are nearly 6,000 individuals in Wyoming and 60,000 individuals in Colorado currently affected by epilepsy.

The Epilepsy Foundation of Colorado & Wyoming is the leading nonprofit health organization in the region dedicated to connecting, educating, and empowering to improve the lives of everyone affected by epilepsy. We connect people to healthcare providers, support networks, and each other. We educate school personnel, employers, and the community at large, to reduce stigma and raise awareness. And we empower people affected by epilepsy with knowledge, resources, and advocacy to live their best lives. Founded in 1964 in Colorado, the Foundation expanded to include the State of Wyoming in 2021.

The partnership between the Epilepsy Foundation and WIND brings together the strengths of both organizations. Leveraging WIND networks as a key resource, information and training related to epilepsy for children, adults, family members, professionals and communities from the Colorado and Wyoming Epilepsy Foundation will soon be available throughout Wyoming.
