Registration for our 14th National Conference on Hydrocephalus is OPEN!
The goal of our conference is to provide resources and tools for navigating the medical, educational and social challenges of living with hydrocephalus. The conference is also an opportunity to connect with individuals throughout the community.
Highlights of the conference scheduled for June 16-19th include the 2016 Hydrocephalus Health Care Professional Day, a New Participant Orientation and Luncheon, the keynote address, the Robert Pudenz Lectureship, a hands-on brain anatomy and physiology lab, our ever-popular community connection sessions, and over 80 educational sessions, 15 of which will be repeated. Our conference will open with a Welcome Reception where participants can reunite with old friends and create new connections. Our Dinner Dance and Talent Show brings us together to celebrate our vibrant community.
