In 2001, the Edmonton Epilepsy Association (EEA) 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 they introduced these exceptional booklets in December 2003. The booklet series was officially launched as part of their March 2004 Epilepsy Awareness Month activities.
Since that time, the booklets have been periodically updated and reprinted. For the past several years, UCB Canada Inc. has provided the EEA with unrestricted Grants that made it possible to print thousands of each booklet for free distribution to Epilepsy Associations, Hospital Epilepsy Clinics, and Neurologists’ Offices across Canada.
Thanks to the efforts of a sister association, Épilepsie Montréal Métropolitain, all eleven of the booklets have now been translated into French. They are printed in Edmonton are distributed from the EEA office to Hospital Clinics, Epilepsy Associations, and Neurologists’ Offices in Francophone Canada.
