Brainwaves e-News, Ed 41, 2021

Hello Friend,
Epilepsy Awareness Month this March was an array of events, fundraisers and activities. We had buildings lit up all over the State and Penguin’s penguin was dressed in a beautiful handmade outfit.
Some photos of the month are collated below and there are more on our Facebook page. Thank you to all Tasmanians who participated.

Our seizure first-aid training came into good use during the Starry Starry Night Purple Party at Hobart’s Town Hall and we were able to quickly assist one of our guests who experienced an unexpected seizure (sadly just a part of life for people who live with this condition).

There was some good media coverage about epilepsy throughout the month and if you missed it I encourage you to read my Talking Point published in the Mercury newspaper.

Our Just Go Purple suite of resources will remain available throughout the year to help you with epilepsy-related educational activities, reading lists and fundraising.

Take care,

Wendy Groot

CEO Epilepsy Tasmania
