Every hour, 20 Americans are diagnosed as having epilepsy.
More than twice as many Americans have seizure disorders, including epilepsy, as have Parkinson's disease, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, and muscular dystrophy combined! Yet none of these well-known diseases carry the powerful stigma associated with epilepsy.
From counseling services to education to residential and day programs, EPIC Long Island offers a wide variety of programs to assist those living with epilepsy, seizure disorders, or physical, intellectual, or emotional challenges.
