Since 1960, the Edmonton Epilepsy Association has helped to improve the lives of persons living with epilepsy by providing information, referral and support services as well as awareness and education programs. Each year, over 3,500 children, youth and adults benefit from the services of the Edmonton Epilepsy Association.
The Edmonton Epilepsy Association was formed in 1960, having evolved from the Western Canada Epilepsy League (Edmonton Branch). In 1961, the Edmonton Epilepsy Association was accepted as a member of the United Community Fund (now the United Way). While the Association endeavors to provide information services to Central and Northern Alberta, over 80% of our services are within the greater Edmonton area.
KIDS ON THE BLOCK - TEACHING CHILDREN ABOUT EPILEPSY ONE SCHOOL AT A TIME
Our office remains open at this time. However, we have placed a short-term freeze on all in-person events that are routinely offered by us. We will continue to follow the recommendations of the Federal, Provincial and Municipal Governments which are evolving. The well-being of our members, employees, friends and families is of the deepest concern to us.
Even though these are trying times and many of our programs are suspended a telephone call to us will be returned within 24 (working day) hours.
The High Level Bridge will be lit in purple to commemorate the official 60th Anniversary of the Edmonton Epilepsy Association on June 7th, 2020. Our 60th Anniversary Gala will be held in the fall.
