Join the Hydrocephalus Patient Registry
What is HAPPIER?
HAPPIER is an online database created for our community to share your experience living with hydrocephalus. By sharing your experience, you’re giving researchers access to important data that can lead to discoveries in underlying causes of the condition, intervention strategies for preventing the condition, improvements in diagnosis, and/or alternative treatments. You’re also informing the work of the Hydrocephalus Association in developing programs and resources to support you with living daily with hydrocephalus. Discoveries in any of these areas ultimately leads to improved outcomes for patients.
Whether you are living with hydrocephalus or provide care for someone with hydrocephalus, we welcome you to join our quickly growing community and share your experiences. Your contributions are meaningful. Together, we will move hydrocephalus research forward as well as improve support services and resources for our community.
