PEP Jobs' History
CPMC’s Epilepsy Program and the California Department of Rehabilitation established an employment program called PEP Jobs in 2006 because some people with seizure disorders need support with the basics of employment preparation and with navigating their job search.. The program is sponsored by California Pacific Medical Center. Additional partners include the Epilepsy Foundation of Northern California Opens new window and the epilepsy programs at UCSF Medical Center and Stanford Medical Center. We began working with individuals with brain injuries in 2010 and partnered with clients from the Marin Brain Injury Network.
