Connections Support Group

Each month, the Epilepsy Foundation of Southeast Tennessee hosts our Connections Support Group meetings for anyone who is affected by epilepsy.

These meetings are a great place to connect with other people who understand what you're going through as well as expert guests from a wide variety of fields. These guests include neurologists, social workers, attorneys, and pharmacists, just to name a few!


Our Chattanooga, Cleveland, and Dalton support groups are combined for virtual meetings at 6pm on the first Thursday of the month! Even if you've never joined us before, we'd love to see you there!
