Epilepsy Southwestern Ontario is our community partner whose mission is to enhance the lives of people affected by epilepsy and seizure disorders by providing a network of services that educate, support and build community awareness.
Their vision is a community free of barriers where persons affected by epilepsy and seizure disorders are empowered and supported to live a life of dignity, self-worth and hope.
Their values are that they are dedicated to providing innovative services that are responsive to individual needs. They are both inclusive and collaborative in their approach to ensure that all individuals with epilepsy will have the opportunity to fully participate in their community.
Through a program called, Clinic To Community, Epilepsy Southwestern Ontario also supports our comprehensive epilepsy clinic by ensuring that one of their educators are in hospital in this clinic to reach out to families and provide family and school support that is needed.
