Marc Elliot "What Makes You Tic?"
Marc Elliot recently graduated from Washington University in St. Louis. His college experience resembled that of many others: he participated actively in his fraternity, played intramural sports, studied abroad and completed all of the pre-med requirements. None of those things was particularly extraordinary except for this fact: he did them with Tourettes syndrome and only four feet of intestines. In dealing with his personal challenges, Elliot has gained uncommon insight into the power of perseverance as well as the importance of understanding other peoples' differences. In addition, he has learned the value of humor and its necessity in our daily lives. These insights have given him an incredible opportunity to inspire and teach his peers and adults alike. This event is free and open to the public.
