Neuroscience Institute Events

The Maine Brain Aneurysm Support Group

he last Thursday of each month
6:00 PM

Room 7, Dana Health Education Center
Maine Medical Center, 22 Bramhall St. Portland, ME

Survivors, family members, caregivers and anyone interested are welcome to attend. The meetings will provide information and education on a variety of topics relating to the treatment and recovery process for both survivors and caregivers. At each meeting, we will have a guest speaker that will give short presentations and then open the floor for discussion.

The meetings will also provide an opportunity for reassurance and personal exchange between survivors and caregivers.

Please be aware that these meetings are not held to offer specific medical advice, but to provide peer support and education. This is a great place for you to meet and share with others who have been through similar experiences.
