The Epilepsy Agency of the Big Bend, Inc. (EABB) works to reduce barriers to care for those whose lives are affected by epilepsy, particularly individuals and families experiencing poverty.

EABB was established in 1989 as a charitable 501(c)3 organization to provide services to epilepsy patients and their loved ones, within a 14-county region. EABB navigates tailored, case-managed solutions to care through the provision and payment of diagnostic, treatment and pharmaceutical services; community education; and advocacy for social equity and improved quality of life for all who are touched by this debilitating central nervous system (CNS) disorder. If you or a loved one needs help, please call (850) 222-1777 in Tallahassee; or, in Panama City call 850-694-0994. You can also reach out to us by email at
