Our office remains open at this time. However, we have placed a short-term freeze on all in-person events that are routinely offered by us. We will continue to follow the recommendations of the Federal, Provincial and Municipal Governments which are evolving. The well-being of our members, employees, friends and families is of the deepest concern to us.
Even though these are trying times and many of our programs are suspended a telephone call to us will be returned within 24 (working day) hours.
The High Level Bridge will be lit in purple to commemorate the official 60th Anniversary of the Edmonton Epilepsy Association on June 7th, 2020. Our 60th Anniversary Gala will be held in the fall.
