The mission of Eric's Corner is to raise awareness of epilepsy and to connect our community with resources to effectively manage an epilepsy diagnosis.

This group provides both an atmosphere of sharing facilitated by a group of individuals with over 15 years experience living with seizure disorders; and an opportunity to host guest speakers from within the industry to provide up-to-date news and views on epilepsy treatments, challenges and other resources.

This free support group includes social gatherings such as dinner, bowling, or an afternoon at the park. Epilepsy can be an isolating disorder, and Eric's Corner social gatherings encourage all individuals to participate in life's activities.

When:  The third Thursday of the month from 6:30-8:00 PM

Where: 5725 W. Las Positas Blvd., Second Floor, Pleasanton
