Epilepsy Foundation to hold program Oct. 8

The Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota announced that its Seizure Smart Communities program in the Brainerd/Baxter area received a $10,000 grant from the Otto Bremer Foundation. The grant has an additional $10,000 match opportunity if the Foundation raises $10,000.

The foundation will launch the Seizure Smart Communities program in Brainerd with a free community workshop at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Central Lakes College (CLC). A seizure smart community includes training for area school personnel, emergency responders and the community to help people learn about epilepsy and the proper way to respond to a seizure. The program helps people with epilepsy feel connected locally to the resources they need to manage their seizures.
