A positive awareness campaign that highlights the range of experiences of living with epilepsy and reinforces the reality that people with epilepsy are more than just their epilepsy.
The #Iam1in100 campaign is a Canadian epilepsy awareness campaign created by Epilepsy Ottawa and adopted by the Canadian Epilepsy Alliance. It was initiated on March 1, 2020 and is intended to help expand the representation of what it means to live with epilepsy.
