Dr. Charles J. Marcuccilli has been named to the medical advisory board of the Danny Did Foundation.
An associate professor in the Division of Pediatric Neurology at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, Marcuccilli joins Dr. Marvin Rossi of Chicago's Rush University Epilepsy Center on the board, which executes the foundation's goal of preventing pediatric death by seizures.
Marcuccilli, a Chicago native, attended the University of Chicago's Pritzker School of Medicine and trained at the university's Comer Children's Hospital in the departments of Neurology and Pediatrics.
He also is a member of the American Epilepsy Society, the American Academy of Neurology and the American Academy of Pediatrics as well as a director for First Step Foundation, which provides community outreach for the developmentally disabled.
The foundation was established in January 2010 by Mike and Mariann Stanton after the unexpected death of their 4-year-old son Danny, who suffered a seizure while sleeping.
