Epilepsy is one of the world’s most misunderstood disorders. That’s why each year UHN supports Purple Day, an annual event dedicated to reducing the stigma and raising awareness about epilepsy. The neurological condition is caused by abnormal electrical activity in the brain and affects about one in every 100 Canadians.
