Epilepsy Information Booklets
In 2001, the Edmonton Epilepsy
Association 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. For the past two years, 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.
Thanks to the efforts of our sister association, Épilepsie Montréal Métropolitain, all eleven of our booklets have now been translated into French. We have had them printed in Edmonton, from where we have distributed them to Hospital Clinics, Epilepsy Associations, and Neurologists' Offices in Francophone Canada.
If you are not near an Epilepsy Association or Clinic, you can download and print these booklets below. In many parts of the world there is little or no epilepsy information available. Our website is averaging over 5,000 hits a month just for the booklets, including numerous hits from around the world. To date, our booklets have been downloaded from 176 countries around the world!
** All booklets are in PDF format. Simply click on any title to open.
