Congratulations to Dr. Ian Miller and Patricia Dean, ARNP, CNR, RN, from the Nicklaus Children's Brain Institute. The doctor and nurse practitioner were honored last week at Camp Boggy Creek for their commitment to helping children with epilepsy.
Since 1996, Camp Boggy Creek has made it possible for children with serious illnesses to enjoy a camp experience in a safe, medically-sound environment completely free of charge. Located just a short drive from Orlando, Florida, the 232-acre camp serves children ages 7-16 who have been diagnosed with chronic or life-threatening conditions.
Nicklaus Children's Comprehensive Epilepsy Center is an internationally recognized leader in caring for children and infants with epilepsy, welcoming patients from all over the world. The South Florida-based program offers the latest medical and surgical interventions to help children with epileptic seizures. For children whose seizures cannot be controlled medically, the program has among the largest experience in the nation in conducting pediatric epilepsy surgery, using the latest minimally invasive surgical methods for children including MRI-guided laser ablation surgery (Visualase).
