What is “Seizures and You: Take Charge of the Storm”?
Seizures and You: Take Charge of the Storm is an epilepsy awareness program for middle school students ages 11-14. It is part of an effort to educate teens and push for the inclusion of epilepsy education in school health and science classes.
Through this program we hope to dispel myths and reduce the perceived stigma associated with epilepsy within the teen population.
