Epilepsy Foundation Florida is pleased to partner with several college campuses for networking groups.
University of South Florida- Tampa
The Epilepsy Foundation Florida chapter at the University of South Florida-Tampa is led by a group of individuals with a passion to spread awareness about epilepsy in and around the USF campus. Ever since it was launched in November 2020 along with its sister chapter at FSU, they have certified over 100 individuals in Seizure First Aid and Training, collaborated with different community and campus partners to spread awareness about epilepsy and seizures, and have paved the way for other universities to launch similar initiatives at their universities. Their message to all members of the epileptic community, which includes millions of patients, caregivers, friends, family, and more is that this chapter and this organization will serve as a strong and supportive ally for anyone affected by epilepsy.
