When Norwalk High School junior Adrian Go was diagnosed with epilepsy, his peers asked him questions typical of the uninformed: Does being epileptic mean you're retarded and a spaz?

Go's response usually was he's like everybody else, but he takes a couple more medications.

Today, on a larger scale, the 16-year-old Go is trying to educate the public about epilepsy as the youth representative for the National Center for Project Access. He spoke recently at the initiative's annual grantee meeting in Washington D.C.

A feature story about Go was published recently in the Norwalk Reflector.
