From the CDC’s Prevention Research Center Update:
Emory University Prevention Research Center (PRC) researcher Colleen DiIorio, PhD, has retired happy.
She had delayed her retirement as a professor at Emory University in Atlanta so she could help finalize the launch of WebEase© (Web Epilepsy, Awareness, Support and Education), an epilepsy self-management program that she and Emory PRC colleagues developed under funding from CDC’s Epilepsy Program. It’s the first-ever evidence-based online program for epilepsy self-management.
“WebEase is special because it’s going to have a life after me,” Dr. DiIorio said at a gathering in June 2012 to celebrate both her retirement and the launch of WebEase. That “life” is courtesy of the Epilepsy Foundation, which licensed WebEase and placed it on the foundation website, ensuring that people with epilepsy will have easy and free access.
