SOME OF OUR SUPPORTERS
SAVE A LIFE!
LEARN SEIZURE FIRST AID!
Contact your health-care provider if your pharmacy is unable to fill your prescription. People with epilepsy should not make any changes to their treatment (i.e. skipping doses, reducing the dose, or discontinuing a drug) without consulting their health-care provider. Your physician or nurse practitioner can discuss the potential shortage of a drug with you and develop a treatment plan to most safely manage your epilepsy condition.
NIAGARA FALLS COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRE
If you have not taken advantage of the support and services that the Niagara Falls Community Health Centre provides, we urge you to do so! The NFCHC is located at 4481 Queen Street in Niagara Falls, Ontario. Their services include primary health care and health promotion including Doctors, Nurse Practitioners, counselling, health and wellness programs, education and support. For more information, call 905-356-4222 or visit their website.
SURVEY RESULTS RELEASED
Last year, Leger Marketing conducted a national survey that addressed the many challenges and related issues regarding living with epilepsy. Earlier this year, the "Impact of Epilepsy on Canadians" Summary Report was released.
With an opening message from Gail Dempsey, President of the Canadian Epilepsy Alliance she states that "This survey is the first of its kind in Canada to reveal the impact on the life and health of adults living with epilepsy. We hope its insights provoke thought and action among individuals and governments that will make a difference to the lives of all people touched by the disorder."
As Gail remarks in this opening message, you will hear the voices of the hundreds of people living with epilepsy who contributed to this survey.
