Goals of the Clinic To Community program:
- Provide individuals and their families with information about seizures, seizure first aid and epilepsy.
- Provide individuals and their family with a network of support services to help everyone in the family live well with a diagnosis of epilepsy.
- Reduce the burden of epilepsy on the family, the health care system and the Ontario economy.
Epilepsy Ottawa is running a pilot project of Clinic to Community for adults who have been diagnosed with epilepsy in the last 18 months. Participants in the pilot project will meet with a Clinic to Community Educator (family members and friends are welcome to attend this meeting as well), complete a survey prior to this meeting, and complete a survey one month after the meeting.
If you are 18 or over, have been diagnosed with epilepsy within the last 18 months, and would like to participate in our pilot program, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or complete the contact form below.

Our goal is to eventually expand this program to include any individuals and families living with epilepsy that feel it would benefit them.
