More About Dr. Paige:
Dr. Paige has worked in academic neurology for 14 years, focusing on epilepsy research at the University of Alabama – Birmingham and the University of Iowa. He most recently spent three years researching injury causation and biomechanics in San Antonio, Texas, before joining Knoxville Neurology Specialists.
Dr. Paige is also a dedicated advocate of epilepsy research, awareness and accurate diagnosis of the disorder. He’s worked for many years with the Epilepsy Foundation of America, serving on statewide EFA advisory boards and participating in local EFA educational meetings and support groups. Dr. Paige also serves as medical director of Camp YouCan, a yearly sleepover summer camp for epileptic children in Omaha, Nebraska.
“Children with epilepsy are, understandably, very protected in their daily lives. At camp, we emphasize trying new things and building confidence through outdoor fun and adventure. Activities such as zip line, high ropes, water slide, archery, fishing and canoeing teach campers that their disease does not define them as disabled. Attending camp with other kids who also have epilepsy allows them to feel more normal, freeing them to make camp friends and lifelong memories.”
