Families’ Online Conversations (FOCs)

The EEA is proud to launch a unique program and offer for member families, with children living with epilepsy.  The Families’ Online Conversations, or FOCs, are a special pilot project, which will run between January and June 2021. 


  • Offer a unique and safe space for families of children living with epilepsy to come together, share their experiences
  • Allow participating families to select topics of interest to explore through invitations to special guests and collaborating agencies
  • Build community through conversations, understanding and sharing of experiences
