The NeuroID Program invites you to attend the screening of the mini-documentary “Seizing Hope – High Tech Journeys in Pediatric Epilepsy“. After the film, we will have a panel with special guest, Dr. Judy Illes, from Neuroethics Canda and who is also one of the executive producers of the film.
These event is next Wednesday, December 7, 2022 and will take place at CRiiAS, University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras Campus at 4:00 pm (AST).
Short Synopsis: 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. It is a story of how children and families affected by DRE can seize hope in times of darkness for a better quality of life.
