Do you often catch your child starring off into space? Does she seem to be daydreaming for a moment? Does he often have a blank look on his face? Would you be able to tell if your child was having a petit mal epileptic seizure? More than one out of every hundred kids has epilepsy. Epilepsy is one of the most common disorders of the nervous system affecting more than 2.5 million Americans of all ages, races, and ethnic backgrounds.

Join host, Dr. Winnie King as we explore epilepsy - a neurological condition that makes people susceptible to seizures - a change in sensation, awareness, or behavior brought about by a brief electrical disturbance in the brain. You'll meet an active teenager who lives with epilepsy every day; meet her younger sister who has recently been diagnosed with epilepsy; meet their mother and hear their incredible story. You'll also hear from the leading experts in the field of epilepsy research and listen to a group of teenagers as they discuss their lives living with epilepsy.
