In 2001, the Edmonton Epilepsy Association (EEA), a member office of the Canadian Epilepsy Alliance, 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. In December 2010, UCB Canada Inc. provided the EEA with an unrestricted Grant that made it possible to print thousands of each booklet for free distribution to epilepsy associations and hospital epilepsy clinics across Canada.
If you are not near an epilepsy association or clinic, you can download and print these booklets by clicking on them below.
