The 14th National Conference on Hydrocephalus will take place in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on June 16-19, 2016!
Hydrocephalus is a chronic condition for which there is no cure. Our patient-centered conferences empower all of us to understand, seek out, and put into place care programs and services that will meet our needs now and well into the future.
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 people throughout the community, including medical professionals, representatives of health industry corporations, parents, children, people living with hydrocephalus and people affected by it.
The National Conference attracts participants from all over the world, including physicians, researchers, individuals with hydrocephalus, caregivers and others. This extensive four-day program will cover topics of interest to all members in the hydrocephalus community through interactive sessions, research updates, and educational seminars.
Presentations will be offered through large plenary sessions, panels, workshops with open discussion, and small round tables to allow for intimate learning opportunities on topics such as diagnosis, treatment, and living with hydrocephalus.
