In 2001, the Edmonton Epilepsy Association (EEA), a member office of the Canadian Epilepsy Alliance, received a grant from the Edmonton Community Lottery Board to develop a new series of epilepsy educational booklets. Following two years of research, writing, editing, graphic design work and printing, we were proud to introduce these exceptional booklets in December 2003. The booklet series was officially launched as part of March 2004 Epilepsy Awareness Month activities.
Since that time, the booklets have been periodically updated with each reprinting. In December 2010, UCB Canada Inc. has provided the EEA with unrestricted Grants that made it possible to print thousands of each booklet for free distribution to Epilepsy Associations, Hospital Epilepsy Clinics, and Neurologists’ Offices across Canada.
If you are not near Epilepsy South Central Ontario’s Office or another epilepsy association, you can download and print these booklets by clicking on them below.
