Interns & Outreach

March 6, 2017

Matthew Lorenz and Fady Mekhail are students in the Social Service Work program at Sheridan College. Their community practicum placement this past year has been spent at Epilepsy South Central Ontario. On February 24, 2017, Matthew and Fady represented Epilepsy South Central Ontario at Sheridan College’s Practicum Fair. The fair gave them the opportunity to raise awareness of epilepsy by providing information about the services and supports offered by Epilepsy South Central Ontario. Matthew and Fady largely presented their information to a group comprised of; first year social service work students looking for a future practicum, teachers and second year students looking for future employment and networking opportunities. Matthew and Fady distributed pens, pencils, print materials and awareness bracelets to help advocate for people living with epilepsy and to make others aware of the services and programs at Epilepsy South Central Ontario. Matthew and Fady were available to discuss the programs they have been working on when students asked what their experience was like.
