Seizure Safe Schools

Governor Jared Polis signed HB21-1133: K-12 Seizure Training & Individual Action Plans, aka “Joey’s Law,” into law on May 28, 2021. Starting in November 2021, the law requires at least one staff person at each public school to be trained in the recognition of seizure disorders and seizure first aid. The Epilepsy Foundation of America has developed on demand virtual training sessions for  school personnel and school nurses.

Upcoming Programs and Events

We offer a broad range of educational programs, support groups, and fundraising events to support the 65,000 people living with epilepsy in Colorado & Wyoming. We hope to see you soon!
