Power Hour is for parents or caregivers advocating for the needs of a child anywhere on the epilepsy surgery journey. Scheduled every few weeks on Zoom, you can come with any question you may have about education, transition to adulthood, connecting to financial or medical resources, housing options, epilepsy surgery, dealing with postoperative hydrocephalus or shunt issues, or any other concern.
