Comic Book, “Understanding Transitional Care in Epilepsy” Now Available

“Understanding Transitional Care in Epilepsy” is the 6th comic book in the “Medikidz Explain Epilepsy” series.

The peer-reviewed, educational comic book focuses on the transition process from pediatric to adult health care for patients living with epilepsy, and has been endorsed by the Child Neurology Foundation and the Epilepsy Foundation.

“Understanding Transitional Care in Epilepsy” features two young adults, Brian and Julia, who share their experiences with the transition from pediatric to adult epilepsy care.

Through Brian’s experience with this process and, with the help of the Medikidz, Brian is able to help Julia better understand her health care journey and the importance of planning for this transition.
