Big Brain Epilepsy Initiative

Everybody has a brain and should know how to
care for it. With the Big Brain Epilepsy
Initiative, students have the opportunity to
experience our informative and memorable
inflatable brain and participate in an
accompanying educational session. Topics
covered include brain health, an overview of
epilepsy and seizures, seizure safety and first
aid, and celebrating differences.
