Dr. Morita is a Pediatric Neurologist at Granger’s Parkway location in Riverton.  She is board certified in neurology with a special qualification in child neurology, which she earned in 2009.  She attended the University of Washington for her medical degree in Seattle, and she has been with Granger Medical Clinic since 2014.

The Epilepsy Association of Utah, headquartered on Redwood Road, provides many resources for both those that suffer from epileptic disorders and the general public.  Their mission statement says:

“For over 40 years, the Epilepsy Association of Utah has tirelessly dedicated its efforts to building awareness, acceptance and support to the people of Utah. Whether or not Utahns live with epilepsy, it is our mission to educate people about epilepsy, reach out to people with epilepsy and raise awareness about what epilepsy is and what it is not. These three pillars provide the foundation for continued efforts in helping bring epilepsy out of the shadows of stigma and bathe in the warmth of acceptance.”

With a number of fun fundraisers and events, the Epilepsy Association of Utah is constantly striving to raise awareness of the devastating effect epilepsy can have on an individual.  The Community Service Awards are given out at their annual Black and White Ball in October. This black-tie event is open to the public and acts as a fundraiser for the organization.

Granger congratulates Dr. Morita both for her nomination and for the amazing work she does every day with the children of Utah struggling to have a normal childhood while challenged with epilepsy.
