Episode #106 - Kids Ask Docs the Darndest Things About Epilepsy featuring Dr. Kristen Park and Dr. Adam Numis


This week on Seizing Life® kids who either have epilepsy or who have family members with epilepsy ask pediatric neurologists about epilepsy. Dr. Kristen Park of Children’s Hospital of Colorado and Dr. Adam Numis of the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital answer questions on a wide variety of topics related to epilepsy in an episode recorded live at Epilepsy Awareness Day at Disneyland this past November.

From advocacy to flashing lights to the keto diet, these kids (and in some cases, their parents) come through with great epilepsy questions concerning their siblings, their parents, and themselves. Additionally, Kelly asks the doctors a number of questions submitted by kids during the course of the annual two-day conference held each year at the beginning of Epilepsy Awareness Month in Anaheim, California.
