PUBLIC EVENT  /  7:00 Pm EDT

Seizing Hope: High Tech Journeys in Pediatric Epilepsy

We will show the 30-minute film 'Seizing Hope: High Tech Journeys in Pediatric Epilepsy.' This free public event will include a Q&A session and reception after the screening. Registration is required. A link to register will be provided soon.

 

This mini-documentary is a story about hope for children and their families in mitigating and treating pediatric drug resistant epilepsy (DRE). It is a story about how families learn to trust their medical team, educate them, and help them consider neurotechnology options for their child. It is a story about empowerment as loved ones shed light on the ethical factors that led to their decisions. In doing so, they empower other families that face similar challenges to theirs. It is a story of how children and families affected by DRE can seize hope in times of darkness for a better quality of life. The film may be viewed in English with subtitles in French or Spanish.
