Recently a Ugandan family, with three teenagers affected by a seizure disorder called Nodding syndrome, stayed at The Children’s Inn. The disorder strikes at about age five and seizures and their aftereffects negatively impact intellectual and physical development.
The affected children stayed at the Clinical Center; other family members stayed at The Children’s Inn and visited the hospital daily.
