The Epilepsy Society of Northwest Florida has partnered with American Medical ID to provide medical ID bracelets to those living with epilepsy in Northwest Florida. This allows the process of ordering and engraving the bracelets to run more smoothly. We have currently provided 20 medical ID bracelets and we have received amazing feedback. Tiffany's mom states, "Tiffany is very proud of her bracelet and she wears it everyday."
Now that we have a system in place, the Epilepsy Society staff has visited with local neurologist to make them aware of this service. We hope to provide 250 medical ID bracelets to individuals living with epilepsy by September 2013.
Why are medical ID bracelets so important to those living with epilepsy?
In an emergency, when you might be unable to speak for yourself, a medical ID bracelet or necklace speaks for you.
Thank you again for your generosity and support of our project! We are pleased to be able to offer this service to our community and we could not have done it without your help.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for helping us achieve our fundrasing goal. It certainly is exciting to be able to provide a much needed service to our clients. We have already received over 20 Medical ID bracelet requests from those diagnosed with epilepsy in Northwest Florida!
At the Epilepsy Society of Northwest Florida, our original plan was to order medical ID bracelets through a Medical ID company. This would include both the bracelet and the clients information engraved on the bracelet plate. However, after further research and obtaining quotes, we have found that it would be more cost-effective to order the bracelets and have them engraved at a local jewelry shop. This will allow us to put more "client specific" information on the bracelet.
