The Epilepsy Foundation of Kentuckiana has received a grant from the national Epilepsy Foundation and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to provide free 40- to 45-minute epilepsy awareness programs to students in grades K-5 in Kentucky and southern Indiana.

Students who complete the training should be able to demonstrate a basic understanding of epilepsy as a medical condition, identify and learn about different types of seizures and know what to do and what not to do when someone is having a seizure.

Lessons are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. Email Beth Stivers or call Stivers at (502) 637-4440, ext. 14, or (866) 275-1078 to schedule the training.
