epilepsy

I had a long, very enjoyable conversation with an elementary school principal last week as she was getting ready for the new school year. One topic we kept coming back to was dealing with students who have seizures in class…which is apparently a lot more common than you’d think. And it seems not all seizures are created equal.

Today on the Best Of Our Knowledge, we’ll listen to a conversation with two doctors who specialize in Epilepsy, and see how this condition is affecting more and more lives.

We’ll also spend an academic minute getting into some heavy metal!
