State House passes Tuberous Sclerosis Complex Day resolution

State Rep. Aaron Miller last week introduced a resolution designating May 15, 2019, as Tuberous Sclerosis Complex Global Awareness Day in Michigan.

Tuberous Sclerosis Complex affects an estimated 1 in every 6,000 live births in America and is one of the leading known genetic causes of epilepsy. Despite this, many professionals in the medical and educational fields are still unaware of the best methods to diagnose and treat the condition.

Miller delivered a speech on the House floor during session last Wednesday in support of his resolution, commending families and individuals affected by TSC for their sacrifice and dedication in dealing with this condition. Over half of those who have TSC also have autism and many others encounter varying degrees of behavioral and learning problems.

House Resolution 98 passed the Michigan House of Representatives with unanimous support.
