The Jamaican Epilepsy Association

The Jamaican Epilepsy Association (JEA), a registered NGO non-profit organization, founded in 2002, by Nora Perez, and was subsequently inducted in 2004 as a member of the International Bureau for Epilepsy (IBE) in Ireland. JEA's mission is to make a positive difference through epilepsy awareness and first aid training. Proper training and heightened awareness of how to overcome and manage epilepsy, can create a more productive and prosperous Jamaica.

Your attendance and contributions at this event will support the "Awareness and Sensitization Training in Schools" project which promotes epilepsy awareness in order to dispel myths and end the stigma of epilepsy which can lead to abuse and discrimination. The project is endorsed by both the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Health in Jamaica.

The JEA is currently being funded by donations and fund-raising events such as the Jamaica By Bike 2015 Kingston to Negril ride.


Thank you for your generosity and care!
