SC students taught epilepsy awareness

Mary and Erik Meyer know first-hand how scary a seizure can be, as their daughter, Sandy Creek ninth grader Mikaela, is prone to them. Monday, Sandy Creek Middle School students were taught by Mary and three members of the Midwest MedAir crew what epilepsy is and how to help someone having a seizure. With the help of pilot Spencer Noack, flight paramedic Albert Hauschild, and flight nurse Sheryl Bakare, Mary talked with the students, explaining what to do and not to do if someone is having a seizure, and what it means to be epileptic. Mary said she hopes that by bringing the MedAir crew to SC, students will have a better understanding of epilepsy and how it affects the patient, as well as the family, but also have a better understanding of the different types of seizures.
