2016 EDUCATION ENRICHMENT FUND SCHOLAR

A mother who struggled with not knowing the answer to her child’s epilepsy and who never gave up. After finally identifying a genetic cause, she helped form a non-profit foundation built around this mutation that provides support to other families who have had this same diagnosis and helps coordinate new research studies. She plans to use her scholarship to learn how to effectively write grants and raise funds for research, while also learning best practices to advocate in the healthcare and political arenas.
