Seizing Hope: High Tech Journeys in Pediatric Epilepsy

Please join us for a special screening of Seizing Hope: High Tech Journeys in Pediatric Epilepsy! Free admission – everyone is welcome!

Surgery may be one option for them, but what if there is another option that is less invasive or more effective? What if new technology can bring hope to children who have DRE?
