Our History

In 1983, the Epilepsy Foundation Texas was founded by current Chief Executive Officer, Donna Stahlhut with a phone in her kitchen.  Taking a proactive stand, Ms. Stahlhut established a widespread network of information, resources, and support for others dealing with the multidimensional difficulties associated with epilepsy. 

The lives of thousands of adults and children living with epilepsy, in the northeast, southeast, and western region of Texas have been profoundly touched by the programs and services that have grown out of this humble beginning. The Epilepsy Foundation of Texas has a rich history of providing a wide array of programs and services to benefit people with epilepsy and their families.
