Wyoming: As a result of a school nurses training to increase competencies for schools with epilepsy, provided through Project Access in Wyoming, one specific school nurse has become a statewide leader to improve the health and treatment of students with epilepsy. She volunteered to become a member of the Wyoming Epilepsy Association's Board of Directors. Following those engagements, she volunteered to receive training and then lead support group discussions for other families. She then became a trainer of school nurses. Now, in less than two years, there is significant support and information provided to the northwest area of Wyoming, an area that had not been receiving much information, yet has a high population. In the last year, she founded and now runs the Northwest Wyoming Epilepsy Association that provides epilepsy support groups, trainings, and information to families and professionals throughout the state.
