Community Education

Seizure Smart Schools 

We are committed to making all schools in Hawai’i seizure smart. When teachers, students and all school personnel better understand epilepsy, they are more equipped to provide the best possible environment for Hawaii’s students with seizures.

For School Nurses 

We offer a free online or in-person training for school nurses. Nurses can earn 3.2 CEUs!

For School Personnel 

Designed specifically for school personnel, this training program teaches seizure recognition and first aid. It also provides essential information for anyone working with students with epilepsy and seizures.

Contact us to schedule an in-person training at your school.

Seizure Smart Communities

We work to educate, connect and empower people all across the Hawaiian Islands to be seizure smart. This includes local media, hospitals, clinics, schools, businesses, community groups and government officials. Contact us to schedule an epilepsy awareness presentation or to request informational materials.

Emergency Medical Service Providers 

This program can be provided face-to-face or online. The emergency medical service training, about 45 minutes in length, aims to train EMT’s on seizure recognition, correct response to seizures, and awareness of the unique needs of people with epilepsy who might need to be taken to the hospital. Users who complete this course are eligible to receive a certificate of successful completion at the end (for the online course only).
