$1.2M grant to aid Mich. children with epilepsy

LANSING — The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) was recently awarded a $1.2 million grant over a three-year period by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Maternal Child and Health Systems Branch for the Michigan Pediatric Epilepsy Project.

The focus of the grant is to improve access to quality health care for children and youth with epilepsy in Michigan’s rural and medically underserved areas. This grant award will enable the Michigan Children’s Special Health Care Services (CSHCS) Division to expand upon current efforts to improve access to specialized pediatric epilepsy services.

More than 13,000 Michigan children up to 17 years old have active epilepsy, and roughly 25 percent of Michigan’s youth population reside in rural areas. Children in rural and underserved areas often have less access to pediatricians, pediatric sub-specialists, and coordinated care. By increasing access to care, this funding will help positively impact overall health and well-being of children with epilepsy

This project is supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) under grant number H98MC26257, Awareness and Access to Care for Children and Youth with Epilepsy, in the amount of $414,000.
