Epilepsy Durham Region’s 2023 AGM: Community Connect Segment

May 16, 2023

Our Annual General Meeting (AGM) brings together members of Epilepsy Durham Region to recap the previous year’s accomplishments, discuss future goals, and elect officials. For this year’s AGM, we invite you to participate in the Community Connect Segment. The keynote speaker will be Doug Smith, the General Manager of Solutions for Microsoft Canada, speaking about his journey with epilepsy.

We are honoured to welcome Doug Smith as our keynote speaker for our AGM. Mark your calendars for Tuesday, May 30th at 6:00 pm to participate in this virtual event and be inspired by his story. If you’re interested in more information, please email us at info@epilepsydurham.com.

Doug is responsible for leading a world-class team of Microsoft cloud and product technology specialists, and he also lives with epilepsy. Doug will share his experience with epilepsy and how he overcomes the various challenges that are involved. Be prepared to hear insightful and encouraging stories of how he refuses to let epilepsy hold him back and instead uses it as fuel to propel him forward in life.

Doug Smith highlights the importance of awareness and advocacy for individuals who have epilepsy. He encourages people to view epilepsy not as a hindrance but rather as an opportunity to create a more inclusive society that values diversity and empowerment.

His personal stories and experiences are a testament to his strength and resolve, providing a shining example of overcoming adversity. Doug’s story of resilience and determination serves as an example to us all that even in the face of challenge and adversity, we can overcome and achieve our goals. We are grateful for his participation in our event.
