Epilepsy Ottawa provides a range of programs and services for people with epilepsy or who know someone with epilepsy.
We provide information, resources, and community referrals to people with epilepsy and their families.
Clinic to Community (pilot project)
Clinic to Community is an epilepsy education program to help people with epilepsy and their families better understand the condition and seizure management, how to identify when a seizure is a medical emergency, treatment options, and how to cope with the unpredictability of seizures. Epilepsy Ottawa has funding to pilot this program for adults who have been diagnosed with epilepsy in the last 18 months. We are working on securing funding to expand this program to families with children who have been recently diagnosed with epilepsy and all people with epilepsy and their families who feel they would benefit from more information.
If you are at least 18 years old, have been diagnosed with epilepsy in the last 18 months, and you are interested in participating in our pilot program, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
