The Epilepsy Foundation of NENY provides programs and services to over 45,000 people with epilepsy who live in our 22-county service area that includes the Upper Hudson Valley, Capital Region and the North Country. Our Satellite Office in Highland serves over 11,000 people with epilepsy who live in Dutchess, Ulster and Sullivan counties.
Our mission is to lead the fight to stop seizures, find a cure and overcome the challenges created by epilepsy. EFNENY provides information, counseling, case management, support groups, advocacy and other assistance that includes training school nurses, teachers and first responders about epilepsy.
In each of the last three years, the Foundation has held a Hudson Valley Stroll for Epilepsy to raise funds to be used locally to continue these programs and services. The 4th Hudson Valley Stroll for Epilepsy will be held on Sunday, May 19, 2013 at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds in Rhinebeck.
