Epilepsy Information Drop-in Sessions

Friday 13 November 2015

Epilepsy New Zealand and Richmond Library are running free epilepsy information sessions at Richmond Library in November, as “Epilepsy affects more people than you know,” says Jackie Archer of Epilepsy New Zealand.

The information sessions are for anyone who has ever had a question about epilepsy.

Jackie says, “We want to live in a society where everyone understands epilepsy and where attitudes are based on fact, not fiction. After all, epilepsy affects more people than you know, and it’s easier to live with when you understand it.”

Do you have epilepsy, or know someone who does? Would you like to know more about epilepsy? These free drop-in information sessions will provide information on what epilepsy is and why people have it, treatments for epilepsy, what to do if someone you know has a seizure, and the answers to any other questions people may have.

Epilepsy New Zealand representatives will be at Richmond Library on Monday 16 November 11am-12pm and Wednesday 18 November, 1-2pm. Everyone is welcome and bookings are not necessary.

If you have questions but are unable to make it to one of the Epilepsy Information sessions at Richmond Library, Epilepsy Information and Support Specialists can be contacted anywhere in New Zealand on 0800 EPILEPSY.
