Our support group for parents of children that have suffered a stroke meets monthly on scheduled Tuesday’s from 6 – 7:30 pm in the University Physicians Inc. building on the Anschutz Medical Campus or at the Brain Injury Alliance of Colorado (alternating months). Please check here or at our Facebook page or Twitter feed for updated information on meetings.
These meetings are open to families of children of all ages and all types of stroke. Your child does not need to be seen at our stroke clinic to join the meetings. Typically, we hold an informal presentation and allow the parents to socialize. Dinner and parking are provided at each meeting. Childcare is available only at meetings held at the UPI building on the Anschutz Medical Campus. Please make plans accordingly when we meet at the BIAColorado location.
Please check back here, on Facebook or Twitter for updates on the date and location of our next meeting.
If you have questions, or to find out more about upcoming meetings, please contact:
Amanda Kenny at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 303-724-2677.
