The first International Epilepsy Day will take place on Monday, 9th February 2015. This world day for epilepsy will be a major step in improving epilepsy awareness and will also highlight the urgent need for increased research into epilepsy.

37,000 Irish people over the age of 5 years suffer from this chronic condition and it affects some 50 million people worldwide.

The Epilepsy service in Beaumont will run an awareness day on Mon 9th outside the staff restaurant in the morning and again at the patient information centre in the afternoon offering epilepsy and seizure advice to patients, families and staff.

The Rose Appeal campaign from Epilepsy Ireland will run through February on social media so please donate.
