Celebrate epilepsy awareness all of March! 
Thank you to all the local businesses who are supporting Epilepsy Awareness in March!


March is Epilepsy Awareness Month in Canada. It’s a great time for anyone with an interest in epilepsy to raise awareness, challenge myths, and help dismantle the stigma of epilepsy. Stay tuned for activities planned for March 2019!
