Jaburg Wilk was proud to be a sponsor of the inaugural fundraising event, Epilep-TEA Party, for the Epilepsy Foundation of Arizona. A live event on November 7th, it was very well attended and event proceeds support Camp Candlelight; Seizure Training & Education, Advocacy Information & Referral Service; and SUDEP & Bereavement Support.
Since 1973, Epilepsy Foundation of Arizona “EFAZ” has been dedicated to the welfare of people with epilepsy in Arizona, and is a chapter of the larger national Epilepsy Foundation. EFAZ has developed public education programs that foster community awareness to improve healthcare and has made community support programs available to all 77,000 Arizonans affected by epilepsy free of charge. Some of these programs include Camp Candlelight, which is an annual camp for minors with epilepsy, allowing them to attend “summer camp” safely with the help of trained medical staff and counselors. EFAZ also provides seizure training to various public safety and police departments in an effort to help police recognize seizure symptoms (as opposed to drug or mental health issues) in individuals who need medical help rather than police intervention. These are just a few of the programs EFAZ supports.
