What's On

We have some great events coming up in 2019....

Queensland Epilepsy Symposium (31 October)

For more than ten years Epilepsy Queensland has delivered current and cutting edge information around epilepsy and its management, along with world renowned presenters and scientists and 2019 is no different.   In this our 50th year, Epilepsy Queensland is holding the Tenth Annual Queensland Epilepsy Symposium, Thinking out of the box!.  Book today

Memorial Service (12 October)

The Epilepsy Queensland Bi-Annual Memorial Service is an opportunity for us all to remember those who we have lost to epilepsy. It is a time where we come together to share a sacred space. In that space, we use music, personal reflections, prayer and poetry as a way of acknowledging our loss and the grief of a wider community. In addition, that space is different for us all, however it is the same grief, the same sadness and at the same time, there are the memories. It is those memories that we share with each other that are sacred.
Mercy Place, Bardon

Epilepsy Seniors Forum (29 October)

In April 2019 we hosted a workshop inviting people with epilepsy 55 years and older, their families and carers to participate in a forum about epilepsy diagnosis, management and strategies to enhance health, wellbeing and quality of life. The facilitator Janet Pond has drafted a resource based on feedback gathered, and would appreciate your time to review the resource.
