What's On

We have some great events coming up in 2018....

QUEENSLAND EPILEPSY SYMPOSIUM (30 October 2018)

SAVE THE DATE! Epilepsy Queensland has proudly presented Queensland's Epilepsy Symposium since 2010. The Symposium has presentations that will be of interest to anyone with a connection to epilepsy whether you are a person with epilepsy, a family member, a health professional or care worker. More information on speakers and topics coming soon. Register your interest today by contacting Epilepsy Queensland on 07 3435 5000 or services@epilepsyqueensland.com.au.
 
 

SEPTEMBER SIZZLE

One in 10 people will have a seizure during their lifetime. With this in mind, our aim is for one person in every household to know seizure first aid. Get involved by hosting a sausage sizzle or other event to raise vital funds to increase awareness and understanding of seizure first aid. Find out more: http://bit.ly/EQsizzle
 
 

LITTLE POSS APPEAL

Help us sell our range of cute merchandise including pens, Poss badges and awareness wristbands - plus gorgeous plush possums. This is a simple yet meaningful and fun way to not only raise funds but also increases community awareness, both of which are of enormous benefit to people living with epilepsy.

Volunteers....... we need your help! If you have a little time to spare and are keen to help us out we would love to hear from you. To meet the dedicated Epilepsy Queensland team and learn more about volunteering opportunities, we invite you to come along to a Morning Tea. For more information on volunteering or to save you a seat at a Morning Tea, please call us on 07 3435 5000 or email epilepsy@epilepsyqueensland.com.au. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Support Groups - Would you like to meet other people who are going through the same thing as you? Epilepsy Queensland currently has support groups running in Brisbane, Ipswich & Mackay. We also have the Dravet Syndrome and the Ketogenic/Atkins Diet Support Groups. It would be great if we had more!

We are in the process of setting up some new support groups and hope to set these groups up, not only by geographic location, but also by interest groups.

These interest areas could include the type of syndrome you or your child has like our Dravet Syndrome interest group or it could be organised by something else you have in common, such as age or gender.

If you are interested in being part of a group, please contact the Services Team and register your interest.

For more information about any of the above events, to express an interest or to get involved, please email rsvp@epilepsyqueensland.com.au or call 07 3435 5000 (1300 852 853 outside Brisbane).
