Living Life in Crisis (MedReal x ResIG x PedSIG)

February 9, 2023 @ 12:30 - 13:30

Shelley Frappier’s story began on Mother’s Day 2014 when her 6-month-old son had an unprovoked seizure. After 10 long months of seizures, they received a diagnosis of an SCN8A mutation, also known as The Cute Syndrome, an ultra-rare genetic mutation that causes severe lifelong epilepsy with no effective treatment. Shelley will be joining us to talk about her patient advocate journey and resiliency in supporting her son during times of crisis. Come learn about how you, as a future physician, can help support families like Shelley’s going during difficult times.

The event is hosted in RGN 2149 and virtually.
