Welcome to

BC EPILEPSY SOCIETY

We have a passionate team of staff and volunteers who work hard everyday to fundraise, provide provincial programs and services, and support our core functions.

We have a dedicated team of professional Board members who have expertise in a wide variety of fields and industry including finance, law, marketing, health, education and business.

We have a volunteer Professional Advisory Board, made up of clinicians, scientists and technologists involved in the diagnosis, treatment and research of epilepsy in BC to help author and produce resources and deliver presentations in person.

All of these individuals proudly strive to make a real and positive difference to those with epilepsy and the people who care for them.
