May 14-20 2017 is National Epilepsy Week! Look out for #epilepsyweek on twitter for updates on how we are spreading the word about epilepsy and the current research being undertaken. The aim of this week is tell tell as many people as possible about epilepsy and to help improve the lives of those affected with the condition. Help to spread the word and support epilepsy charities so that they can continue their work transforming people's lives and by providing training so more people are aware of this condition.
May 10th is Epilepsy Memorial Day. Please spare some time today to remember those who have died from epilepsy. There are around 1200 premature epilepsy deaths each year in the UK.
We had a number of successful events to support CANDO in 2016. Thank you to everyone who came to support. These included:
