Michigan Medicine Pediatric Epilepsy Program raises awareness on Purple Day®

March 28, 2022  //  FOUND IN: Our Employees

Saturday, March 26 was Purple Day® — an international effort to promote epilepsy awareness.

Faculty and staff at Michigan Medicine’s Pediatric Epilepsy Program posed in purple to show their support.

Epilepsy is a general term for a variety of neurological conditions associated with recurrent, unprovoked seizures.

As a Level-4 Comprehensive Epilepsy Center, the multidisciplinary team of experts at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital provides access to the full range of diagnostic and treatment options that may be needed to manage this complex condition.

If you or a loved one has epilepsy, and seizures continue despite treatment, be sure to seek care at a comprehensive epilepsy center.

Epilepsy surgery, ketogenic dietary therapies and neurostimulation devices can be explored as options to reduce or eliminate seizures and improve quality of life.
