As we enter September, which has been designated as National Hydrocephalus Awareness Month, HA is working with the Pediatric Hydrocephalus Foundation and other organizations on the planning and organizing of A Day of Testimony on Capitol Hill. The Day of Testimony will take place on September 23rd, and our goal will be to educate national legislators on the need to devote more resources to hydrocephalus research. Our delegation will be led by Board Chairman, Paul Gross, with other HA speakers including Jenn Bechard (HA Staff), and Michael Williams, MD (HA Medical Advisory Board). In addition, our D.C. delegation has arranged several meetings with key legislators where we will enlist their support on a longer term agenda to secure more resources for hydrocephalus research. We hope to have several important, related, announcements soon, so stay tuned.
