Welcome to the Epilepsy ACT eLearning site
Epilepsy ACT (Epilepsy Association ACT Inc.) is a not-for-profit, self-help community service organisation formed in 1982 to provide services for people with epilepsy, their families and the community.
Today Epilepsy ACT provides support, reassurance, advocacy, referral and information to people with epilepsy. We promote understanding of epilepsy through education and increased community awareness.
