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!

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective.

    A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say that you’ve done a
    amazing job with this. Also, the blog loads super fast for me on Firefox.
    Superb Blog!

    I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to see

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any
    issues of plagorism or copyright violation?

    My site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any solutions to help protect against content from being stolen? I’d certainly appreciate it.
