“Facilitating the Acceptance of Epilepsy”™
Dear Friends and Family,
In light of the evolving public health emergency due to COVID-19, Epilepsy Support and Educations Services is working to minimize exposure to slow the projected spread of infection. Effective immediately and until further notice ESES is suspending all in person meetings. During this time all volunteers and members are urged to communicate via phone, email or other means.
For more information on epilepsy and COVID-19 please visit the National Epilepsy Foundation website. Individuals living with epilepsy are not at an additional risk of COVID-19. However, epilepsy is often a co-morbidity that may accompany other health conditions that may have an influence on a persons risk for COVID-19. If you have a question on epilepsy and COVID-19 please contact you neurologist or primary heath provider. If you think you may have symptoms of COVID-19 please call the New Mexico Coronivirus Hotline at 1-855-600-3453.
We encourage everyone to follow recommendation of the CDC website and New Mexico Department of Health website and other health officials regarding social distancing and other public health advisers, including managing stress and anxiety.
Thank you for your understanding and for your efforts to protect the physical and mental health of our people and communities in New Mexico, including those populations that are the most vulnerable. We are grateful to the many people in New Mexico including our health care workers, first responders and store workers who continue to work and keep us safe, healthy and provide us with the supplies we need during this time.
We have postponed our major fundraiser until further notice, bit during this time like many other non-profits we are still in need of funds to continue our outreach, education and support groups. Should you be shopping on Amazon at any time please keep us in mind. Use smile.amazon.com and pick Epilepsy Support and Education Services, Inc. as you charity and Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchase to ESES.
