The Hydrocephalus Association has become the leading non-profit funder of hydrocephalus research, investing millions of dollars in research projects, both bench and clinical, that aim to improve our understanding on the causes, diagnostics, treatment and outcomes of hydrocephalus. As members, we work on your behalf to ensure greater coordination of research, identify and reach the patient population and provide training and educational opportunities tailored to the needs of the professional community.
We have invested significant resources to build our capacity to better serve you by funding a full-time Research Program Manager who will help to strengthen and build our community. This individual will serve a critical role in supporting professional members by sharing research studies, coordinating educational workshops and overseeing HA’s grant process. In addition, we provide tangible member benefits such as:
- Listing in the Hydrocephalus Physicians Directory.
- Opportunity to join forces with the HA community to increase awareness and funding to support research efforts.
- Priority consideration to present at the National Conference on Hydrocephalus.
- Opportunity to attend HA-sponsored Hydrocephalus Research Conferences.
- Networking opportunities with medical colleagues at events such as the Faculty Dinner at the National Conference on Hydrocephalus and Research Conferences.
- Opportunities to participate in our Scientific & Medical Review Board, our Medical Advisory Board, our Research Committee, and other volunteer roles.
- Opportunities to promote your medical and/or research work to colleagues, the hydrocephalus community, and the general public through the association’s public relations department.
It is only through the support of professional members that we will be able to advance the cause of eliminating the challenges of hydrocephalus. We encourage you to join your colleagues and become a member of the Hydrocephalus Association (HA) today. Your commitment will ensure that HA is able to provide support, advocacy and patient education to constituents affected by this condition and those that care for them.
