Meet others affected by epilepsy

Sometimes it helps to know that you are not going through the challenges of life with epilepsy alone. Throughout the year, we host events where you can meet individuals and families who are also affected by epilepsy and seizures. Check out our calendar to find the latest information about our upcoming events, or read below to learn more about some of our annual favorites!

Support Groups

We host monthly support groups, which can be a great opportunity to meet people. For more information about each group please contact Cristina White at 717-730-6779 or e-mail cwhite@eawcp.org.

Support groups are held on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month. Many of our sessions feature a discussion topic, presenter, or activity. Check out our Upcoming Events page for details!

Purple Party

March 26th is a recognized Epilepsy Awareness Day across the globe, and we celebrate in March each year by hosting a Purple Party in Pittsburgh. This afternoon event is filled with lunch, music and crafts, celebrating epilepsy awareness, and we encourage you to wear as much purple as possible!

Fall Family Events

Each year the EAWCP hosts family events that offer opportunities to gather with others, enjoy games, crafts and fall themed festivities.
These events are planned throughout the EAWCP service territory and held at various venues.

Holiday Parties

At the end of the year, we host Holiday Parties in Erie, Harrisburg, and Pittsburgh. The Holiday Parties feature lunch, music, and festive activities and sometimes we even get a surprise visit from Santa!
