Our support group for parents of children that have suffered a stroke normally meets monthly on the second Tuesday of the month from 6 – 7:30 pm in the University Physicians Inc. building on the Anschutz Medical Campus. The group also meets for other family activities.
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. Our social workers and pediatric stroke staff are on hand to provide support. Typically, we hold an informal presentation and allow the parents to socialize. Dinner and childcare are provided at each meeting.
Our next meeting will be
Feb 12, 2019 6 pm-7:30 pm.
After a few months off last year, we are fully staffed and able to provide support for these great meetings. We had a great meeting in January and invite all our families to join us in 2019!
For February we will have a Certified Child Life Specialist joining us to discuss how to support your child when talking with peers about their differences. See our flier below, and RSVP by February 8th.
As in the past, dinner and childcare will be provided.
Our February meeting will be on Feb 12th, 2019 at 6 pm here at our HTC. 13199 E. Montview Blvd, Suite 100. Parking is available on the first level of the parking garage just to the east.
Please check back here, on our Colorado Pediatric Stroke Facebook Page, on The HTC Facebook Page or Twitter for regular updates on the date and location of upcoming meetings.

Strike Out Stroke-2016
Strike Out Stroke this year was a really fun event hosted by the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field. In baseball parks all over the country, Strike Out Stroke brings awareness to all about stroke at any age. This year the event was held on June 26th and the Rockies provided information on stroke, allowed stroke survivors (including one of our pediatric stroke patients) to throw out the first pitch and highlighted members of the community who have experienced stroke. Many of our stroke patients and our stroke team were able to attend this fun event. Find more pictures of this event at our Facebook Page here
