Christin Godale - Bringing Hope to the World of Epilepsy
Christin Godale knows the world of epilepsy all too well. When she was two years old, she started to have absence seizures and has lived her life on medications as her seizures have shown themselves in many ways. These seizures have robbed her of many childhood experiences and caused her to lose friends, but determined to not give up hope, Christin has dedicated her life to finding a cure for epilepsy. Today she is enrolled in the Neuroscience Graduate Program at the University of Cincinnati and spends her days working on a cure.
Recently Christin was awarded the Outstanding Scholar in Neuroscience Program from the National Institute of Health. She was selected from finalist from across the country to receive this prestigious award for her exemplary work.
Besides working diligently to find a cure, Christin is a tireless advocate for the cause. She educates faculty and students at UC about epilepsy and demonstrates daily that seizures do not have to stand in your way of achieving your dreams. Christin also is a regular volunteer at the Epilepsy Alliance, doing whatever is needed to raise funds and promote awareness. She is joined in this work by her husband Kevin who has been a steadfast support who has helped her overcome her challenges with seizures.
Recently UC Health made a film about Christin's epilepsy journey that we encourage you to watch below. Congratulations Christin on your award from the NIH and thank you for working so hard for everyone living with epilepsy!
