At EYR we believe in educating the public about Epilepsy to create a safer environment for people living with seizures day to day within York Region. Spreading education to York Region on Epilepsy has been a focus of ours for over 30 years and every year we reach out and touch more people as well as increasing numbers of presentations. We base this on statistics of people living with this disease as it continues to grow and become more common within our local communities. Most people at some point in their lives will witness a seizure or have a seizure themselves, which increases the need to be educated on Epilepsy. We provide a wide range of presentations specific to whom we are informing and by continuing to educate so many people it will lead to a higher chance of someone in a public space being able to support or assist someone through a seizure. Having a seizure or witnessing one can be frightening for people but by making more and more people every year informed on how to assist them, it can not only help the individual, but save lives too.
If you are interested in booking a presentation email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call our office (905-640-8000). We are flexible to dates and times that work best for you.
