Gopher Football Coach Jerry Kill is back at work Sunday after suffering his third seizure during a game.
University of Minnesota Athletic Director Norwood Teague will speak on the issue Monday.
Kill collapsed on the sideline right before halftime of Saturday's game against Illinois. The Gophers went on to win the game.
Dr. Thaddeus Walczak is Clinical Director of Epilepsy Care with University of Minnesota Physicians. He works with Kill's personal epilepsy specialist.
He says while Kill's seizures are serious, they may have an upside for others. "This has encouraged people with epilepsy not to let the condition get in the way because there is a lot of stigma attached to the disease that's really inappropriate."
Stress can be a trigger for some but not for everyone. Walczak says most people with epilepsy can handle stress as well as anyone else and do well working in stressful situations.
