Epilepsy: The Science Behind the Disease


An Exhibit Exploring the Science behind the First Year Summer Reading Book
The Spirit Catches You And You Fall Down
by Anne Fadiman

When: Fall 2015
Where: Dana Medical Library, Main Hall display cases

SpiritimageOn August 31st, 2012, a young woman named Lia Lee died in Sacramento, California. For 26 of her 32 years, Lia had been in a persistent vegetative state, the result of a severe epileptic seizure suffered at the age of 4. The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down is the story of Lia’s, and her Hmong family’s, experience with epilepsy and the American health care system, as told by renowned author Anne Fadiman.
Although this exhibit focuses on the scientific and clinical aspects of epilepsy, perhaps the most profound – and painful – lessons that have been learned from Lia’s story were those relating to the delivery of health care across cultures. Since its publication in 1997, Fadiman’s book has been enormously influential in changing how we think about and provide cross-cultural health care in this country.
