Call & Connect Network
In addition to providing multiple opportunities to learn from professional epilepsy experts, Epilepsy Foundation of Michigan also recognizes the profound value of learning from others who live with epilepsy on a daily basis. Despite epilepsy being one of the most common neurological conditions, it can nonetheless be difficult to find others who are personally affected by it. Epilepsy Foundation of Michigan is making this big state a bit smaller by offering our Call & Connect Network. This includes two weekly, phone-based discussion groups: one for adults with epilepsy and one for caregivers (e.g. parents, other family members, etc.). The calls provide participants an opportunity to share their experiences and ideas to help each other manage this challenging condition. Each call will offer positive and constructive discussion, with sharing of resources and strategies, creative problem solving, simple goal setting, and general encouragement.  

Whether you call in every week, once a month, or as needed, the Call & Connect Network will be here for you - and all you need to access it is a phone.

Adults with Epilepsy: Thursdays from 1:00 - 2:00 pm ET

We would love to have a group for caregivers. If you would be interested in participating in such a group, please contact Russ Derry at 800-377-6226 ext. 1302.

Please email Russ Derry at if you'd like to participate (if you don't get around to it - that's can still call in).
