New Epilepsy Specialist Appointed

Epilepsy New Zealand, the national epilepsy organisation of New Zealand, is pleased to announce the appointment of Linda Williams as the new Information and Support Specialist for the North Shore, Rodney and Waitemata areas.

Joining Epilepsy New Zealand’s Auckland Branch with a background in the health and community services sectors, Linda is looking forward to getting the word out about epilepsy and the services Epilepsy New Zealand offers so that those affected by epilepsy receive the support they require.

“I am really passionate about helping people in the community”, Linda says. “I am looking forward to working with the community and raising awareness of epilepsy; to let people know that epilepsy is a condition that doesn’t have to rule your life”.

Linda is available for appointments to visit individuals or families, present educational seminars at schools, community groups and to work along side health professionals.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
