Launched in Durham Region in 2018 in partnership with local Epileptologists, Clinic to Community (C2C) is an education program that helps individuals and their caregivers to better understand epilepsy, seizure first response and management, safety tips, and strategies to live well with this neurological disease. This program helps to create a network of support services, education resources, and a connection with a local epilepsy community in Durham Region, helping those impacted by epilepsy to manage their diagnosis.
Epilepsy Durham Region offers Clinic to Community to adults and youth living with epilepsy/seizure disorders, as well as their families and caregivers. Whether you are impacted by a new epilepsy diagnosis, or feel that you may benefit from additional information to help manage and existing epilepsy diagnosis, please contact us to learn more about the Clinic to Community program and its benefits.
