We're excited to provide resources and connections at our National Conference that address the medical, educational and social complexities of living with hydrocephalus. 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, living with hydrocephalus, and life skills.
About The Hydrocephalus Association
The Hydrocephalus Association serves as the primary nexus for research on hydrocephalus, a condition defined by an abnormal, excessive accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) within the cavities of the brain. Hydrocephalus affects over 1 million people in the U.S. alone. Approximately 1-2 babies for every 1000 births are born with hydrocephalus, but anyone can get hydrocephalus at any time through a brain injury or infection, among other reasons, or as part of the aging process.
