Epilepsy is a complex disorder for which complex social and health system solutions are paramount in helping patients lead full and productive lives.
The Ottawa Epilepsy Program seeks to answer this need. The program is a fully interconnected network of community educators, social service providers, patient advocates and healthcare professionals whose activities seek to promote the health and well being of those living with seizures and epilepsy in our nation’s capital.
The Ottawa Epilepsy Program is composed of 4 core programs: adult, pediatric, transition and community.

Speakers: Dr. Sharon Whiting (CHEO), Nikki Porter (Epilepsy Ottawa), Dr. Katherine Muir (CHEO), and Dr. Tad Fantaneanu (The Ottawa Hospital)
Host: Mark McAllister (CityNews)
