Seizure Smart Training - Epilepsy Foundation, Presented by Erik Williams
Seizures can be unpredictable and seldom happen in convenient locations. A person who experiences a seizure in a park, at school, on an airplane, or any number of places may need to rely on the people around them to recognize what’s happening and help keep them safe until the seizure passes. This Seizure Smart Training from the Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota teaches basic seizure recognition and response and corrects the common myths and misconceptions surrounding epilepsy. Since 1 in 10 people will have a seizure during their lifetime, it’s important that 10 in 10 people know how to help.
