International Epilepsy Day 2019

Joe Schmidt and Epilepsy Ireland Logo

For our International Epilepsy Day campaign for 2019, once again we had the wonderful support of then Ireland coach, Joe Schmidt. 

Joe has a personal connection to epilepsy and promoted the message of being a Team Player for our 2019 campaign which aimed to spell out the key response to a seizure.

If someone has a seizure, remember TEAM:

  • T –Take care to protect the person
  • E - Ensure you stay with them
  • A - Allow the seizure run its course
  • M –Move them on to their side until the seizure is over

The video associated with our campaign for 2019 is below and the campaign image is also available for download at the end of this page.
