Missouri’s K-12 public schools will soon require its workers to complete seizure response training every two years. Gov. Mike Parson has signed a healthcare bill into law that requires school nurses to have individualized health care plans to respond to these children.

The bill, referred to as “Will’s Law”, is named after a four-year-old boy from eastern Missouri’s Herculaneum, who has a rare form of epilepsy.
