Great Wrap-Up to a Busy Few Weeks
Gardiner (http://www.cureepilepsy.org/aboutCURE/bios/gardiner_lapham.asp) and I had a great meeting before I flew back home yesterday, with the CDC Director, Dr. Tom Frieden. It was a wonderful opportunity to discuss the Epilepsy IOM Report (http://www.iom.edu/Reports/2012/Epilepsy-Across-the-Spectrum.aspx) and talk about potential next steps to help patients and their families.
Finally back home, I had a great welcome back breakfast with Bogdan and long-time CURE friends Stacey Pigott and Kathy Dodd, the creative minds and boundless energy behind CURE’s popular Rock the Block event. (http://www.cureepilepsy.org/events/past.asp)
I hope you all have a great weekend, and enjoy the extra hour of daylight on Sunday—hopefully that means this winter is soon behind us! If you happen to be in the Chicago area, stop by Northwestern University’s annual Dance Marathon this weekend. This year, the very popular student event benefits our friends at the Danny Did Foundation and the Evanston Community Foundation. More than 1,000 undergraduate students will dance for 30 hours from March 8 to 10! Check out all the details: http://www.nudm.org/
