Final Meeting For 2010

December 18, 2010

Can't believe it is almost the end of 2010!  We had a great meeting, thanks to everyone who attended.  We had some great conversation about hydrocephalus, the accomplishments we made in 2010 and our next year of monthly meetings.

We will still be meeting on the third Saturday of each month in the Casey Room at Swedish Hospital's Cherry Hill Campus (500 17th Avenue, Seattle) from 12:45 - 3:00 pm.  We welcome drop-ins.

We also talked a bit about our upcoming involvement in the Brain Awareness Open House, being held on March 1, 2011 at Museum of History & Industry (MOHAI).  This will be our 14th year having a booth at the event.  A great way to reach out to parents, teachers and kids (middle & high school).  We are still looking for items, brain oriented, for the booth.  As always, we are looking forward to taking part in the BAW event.

Happy Holidays!  Happy New Year!

I am the p.r. director for the Hydrocephalus Support Group, Inc. located in Seattle, Washington.  The support group offers moral support and education to families, friends, caregivers and those (of all ages) living with the condition of hydrocephalus.  Most of those we serve are in Western Washington state.

The group meets monthly in the Casey Room at Swedish Hospital's Cherry Hill Campus (17th & Jefferson), located in the Dining Room, from 1:00 pm -3:00 pm.  Drop ins and children (w/parents) are welcome.

In March, 2011 we will be taking part in the University of Washington's Brain Awareness Week Open House, doing outreach and education with children, teachers and parents from Western Washington.  This will be our 14th year taking part.  It is always rewarding and an event we look forward to every year!
