Seizing Hope Film Screening and Q&A

Join us for a screening of Seizing Hope: High Tech Journeys in Pediatric Epilepsy.

This mini-documentary is a story about hope for children and their families in mitigating and treating pediatric drug resistant epilepsy (DRE). It is a story about how families learn to trust their medical team, educate them, and help them consider neurotechnology options for their child. It is a story about empowerment as loved ones shed light on the ethical factors that led to their decisions. In doing so, they empower other families that face similar challenges to theirs.

The runtime is 30 minutes, and this film is not rated. Click here to watch the trailer.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A. Panelists will include Mayor Jack Crompton; Dr. Judy Illes, Professor of Neurology and Executive Producer; and Sophie & Katherine Cowin, one of the families featured in the film.

Registration is required – email to sign up! If you are bringing a plus one, please let us know their name and email address.

The event is finished.
