Purple Day – Epilepsy Awareness
April 4, 2019

March 26th was “Purple Day”, the international day for epilepsy. Purple Day is dedicated to raising awareness, which is the first step in making a difference to the lives of people affected by epilepsy. Kvikna took part in Purple Day by inviting guest speakers Ágúst Hilmarsson, neurologist from the National University Hospital of Iceland, and Brynhildur Arthúrsdóttir, Chairman of LAUF, an Icelandic association for people affected by epilepsy, to our offices. Our own Sjöfn Kjartansdóttir followed up their talks with a demonstration on how to ensure the safety of someone who is having a seizure. This program was quite the eye opener for us, and despite the fact that many of us have worked designing software to diagnose epilepsy for years, we all learned something new.
