North DuPage – Area 2

Welcome to the Community Action Board of North DuPage County! We are excited to have you here!

The Community Action Boards of the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago were created so that we could come together and make a difference in the lives of the more than 130,000 people currently living with epilepsy in Illinois. Community Action Boards are the first line of contact for many of the communities we serve. Whether it’s establishing program opportunities, planning event initiatives, or discovering new fundraising opportunities, these powerful action boards build lasting relationships throughout Illinois, and help the Foundation realize its goal of creating a seizure free world.

Most recently, the Greater Chicago Epilepsy 5K was held in Wheaton. The event was a great success with over 700 participants. These participants were a huge part in raising the overall revenue of $266,000! Click here to check out pictures of the 5K. 

In April, the North DuPage CAB and EFGC hosted “Seizure Smart Diet” in Glen Ellyn. This free seminar focused on the impact a healthy diet can have on epilepsy and was a great success. A cooking demonstrations was made by Chef Tim Meyers, an Associate Professor of Culinary Arts & Hospitality Management at the College of DuPage.
