Keeping Kids Healthy – Epilepsy: One in a Hundred Kids

An episode of the well-produced pediatric series, examining epilepsy. Two experts explain types of seizures, causes, treatment, while young people with epilepsy and a parent discuss living with it, stigma, and coping. Includes a clip about a teen peer support group. “We just have seizure disorders, that’s all. But we’re normal.” Excellent show.
