Setting Priorities

October 24, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

We were proud to support a great conference, “Priorities for Pediatric Epilepsy Research,” organized by Anne Berg , PhD (Research Professor in Pediatrics at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine).  Parents, pediatric epileptologists, and other health care professionals gathered to brainstorm about how to effect changes in how kids with epilepsy are treated, how we can understand it better and make improvements,  and how we can collect the data we need to inform future research directions and efforts.

It was a great opportunity to show off our city’s brand new Children’s Hospital (The Ann & Richard H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago), and share ideas with so many well-intentioned, well-informed individuals.  We have some huge challenges–but also great opportunities to explore!

Check out some pics below from a great two days!
