Message from the President and CEO

“In times of stress, the best thing we can do for each other is to listen with our ears and our hearts and to be assured that our questions are just as important as our answers.”
—Fred Rogers

Welcome, and thank you for visiting our home on the worldwide web! The Epilepsy Foundation Western/Central Pennsylvania (EFWCP) recognizes that you and your family lead busy lives and that you have a lot of choices about where to turn for information. I want to thank you for taking the time to get to know us a little better and to learn more about epilepsy, seizures and how you can become involved in the epilepsy movement.

I hope that you will begin to find answers to some of your questions about epilepsy and the programs we offer through the EFWCP by spending time on our web page. I also want to encourage you to contact one of our three offices located in Pittsburgh, Harrisburg or Johnstown to speak with a staff member so that we can begin to get to know one another and we can learn how to serve you even better.

I want to encourage and invite you to participate in our local events. The EFWCP has an incredibly dedicated and talented Board of Directors, staff and an array of local volunteers who are here to help and support you and your family on your journey as you cope with a diagnosis of epilepsy or seizure disorder.

Please remember, the EFWCP doors are always open, and our ears and our hearts are ready to listen. We look forward to meeting all of your over the web, over the phone, via email and we all hope in person one day very soon!

Peggy Beem Jelley
President & CEO
