Into The Light


Epilepsy Awareness. Education. Empowerment.

At EFMNY, we have been the heart of the NY metro area’s epilepsy community for more than 45 years. As educators, we’ve worked side by side with teachers, corporate leaders, first responders, families and more to raise AWARENESS about seizure disorders. To that end, we provide tailored EDUCATION programs for people in and beyond the epilepsy community. We commit ourselves to these efforts in partnership with leading epilepsy experts because we know that AWARENESS and EDUCATION will lead to EMPOWERMENT, not just for those of us who are directly affected by seizure disorders, but our greater NY metro area communtiy. Together we will go the distance.
