UPDATE: Watch the 60 Minutes piece and read Frances Jensen’s post about why funding epilepsy research is so important.
Did you know that epilepsy affects over 3 million people in the United States? Despite the fact that it affects more people than Parkinson’s, cerebral palsy and multiple sclerosis combined, the disease and its causes remain stubbornly bewildering. Tomorrow, the news program 60 Minutes will feature the epilepsy research of Children’s Frances Jensen, MD. You can watch a preview here. If you use Twitter, please help us promote the episode by tweeting “http://bit.ly/1t2wdK – tune in to 60 Minutes this Sunday to see Children’s Hospital docs talk about epilepsy.”
