November is Epilepsy Awareness Month and this week we are joined by Mary Loughlin, Northeast Resource Coordinator, and Daniel Dougherty, Patient Educator, with Epilepsy Foundation of Eastern Pennsylvania (EFEPA). We'll talk about living with epilepsy, available services, and the work of EFEPA.
Mary Loughlin started to volunteer for the Epilepsy Foundation Eastern PA in 2000 while actively looking for help & resources for her son, Michael, who had just been diagnosed with epilepsy. Retiring after 32 years with Verizon as a Technician she stepped up her volunteer time and eventually became the Wyoming Valley Coordinator in 2004.
Dan Dougherty resides in Glenside, and is a graduate of Cheltenham High School in Wyncote. He has lived with epilepsy for more than 30 years. Dan is a volunteer Epilepsy Advocate with the Epilepsy Foundation of Eastern PA. Dan has honed his public speaking skills through being an active member of Toastmasters, and was recognized as a Paul Harris Fellow in 2014, by the Glenside Rotary for his work in epilepsy awareness.
