Sarasota Memorial Healthcare Foundation Awards Grant to Epilepsy Services of Southwest Florida

The grants committee and board of Sarasota Memorial Healthcare Foundation recently awarded Epilepsy Services of Southwest Florida (ESSWFL) a grant for $22,400 to assist the agency with overall capacity building.

Grant funds will be used to assist with costs associated with increased community outreach, support staffing, diagnostic testing for clients and emergency medications.   “We feel this is a natural partnership and we’re very grateful to the foundation staff and board for their support,” said ESSWFL executive director Kevin Lindberg.  “Whenever we can add a new revenue source it strengthens the organization and helps to assure that this program continues to serve more than 550 uninsured adults with epilepsy.”
