Marijuana Use for Epilepsy Study

Dr. Ana Suller Marti, an epileptologist with London Health Sciences Centre in London ON is conducting a study to determine whether Canadians who are living with epilepsy are using cannabis to help manage their condition. 

If you are an adult living with epilepsy (or parent/caregiver) or parents of a child/children aged 4 – 18 years who are living with epilepsy, you are eligible to participate. It is not a requirement to have used marijuana. It is hoped to get at least 350 responses to the survey.
