Each meeting begins with a brief presentation by a medical or allied health personnel that will be of special interest to the group. The remainder of the meeting is devoted to open discussion and free interaction. This interpersonal sharing between patients in different stages of recovery has been proven to be very therapeutic. For this reason, participation in the Brain Aneurysm Support Group is greatly encouraged. Family members and close friends play an important role in the recovery process and are always invited.

  • The Brain Aneurysm Support Group has met since December of 1992
  • Meetings are held every other month on the last Friday of the month from 11:00 a.m.- 12:30 p.m. in the Walcott Room.
  • Patients, family members and friends from other hospitals are welcome
