We are pleased to release a new resource for primary care physicians, neurologists, and any health care provider engaged in the care of patients with epilepsy. The Provincial Guidelines for the Management of Epilepsy in Adults and Children provide guidelines for evidence based practice to support the diagnosis, treatment and referral process from the moment of a patient’s first seizure.

On May 24, 2014 Valerie Cull and friends hosted Kick it Up for Kenz Fundraiser in memory of MacKenzie Jordan Scott to raise funds for Epilepsy Support Centre services in the London/Middlesex community. Over 100 guests attended this inaugral event and enjoyed musical performances, food and a silent auction.
Valerie lost a close friend, MacKenzie Jordan Scott at age 20 on August 12, 2013. MacKenzie battled with epilepsy for seven years of her life. Valerie knows all too well how life challenges the 1 in 100 Canadians who have epilepsy. This personal connection to epilepsy inspired Valerie Cull and friends to raise over $4000 in support of epilepsy education programs and support services in their community.

When a London member, who prefers to remain anonymous, heard of the recent funding challenges faced by Epilepsy Support Centre, he called the Centre to see how he could help. He learned that the loss of funding would make it difficult for Epilepsy Support Centre to offer the critical programs and services that help educate the public, reduce the stigma associated with epilepsy, and support families and individuals when they receive a diagnosis of epilepsy.
Within an hour of that phone call, Epilepsy Support Centre received the donor's $8,000 cheque. This generous donation will fill gaps in public education and support services funding and ensure they'll continue to be available.
