HARRISBURG – Legislation which will promote seizure recognition and first-aid training for teachers is headed to the governor’s desk. House Bill 416 would make the completion of an approved-PA Department of Health online course in seizure recognition and first-aid for professional continuing education credit. There are nearly 17,000 children in PA living with epilepsy. With much time spent in school, it’s critical that teachers and other school personnel are able to recognize the signs of a child having seizure and respond appropriately. November is National Epilepsy Awareness Month. If signed by the governor, the legislation will take effect immediately.
