Presentation at Epilepsy Awareness DayGreen Meadow students wore purple in celebration of Epilepsy Awareness Day on Tuesday as they learned more about the neurological disorder and how it affects people.

The Epilepsy Foundation of Northeastern New York gave presentations about epilepsy to students in grades 2-5, providing facts about the disorder and using demonstrations to aid in the learning.

The event was organized by Green Meadow Student Council, who had researched epilepsy, made posters for the school, encouraged students and staff to wear purple and read facts about epilepsy on GMTV during the last week.

“I am very proud of our Student Council’s efforts to plan this event,” said Green Meadow Principal Daniel Garab. “Not only did they turn our school purple, they helped raise awareness and educate our students and staff about epilepsy.”
