April 21– April is our Caregiver Breakout session. We are changing up the format a bit this time. Instead of group introductions and then breaking off into separate groups, the entire 2 hours will be divided. Dr. Ehlers, Dr. Gundenkauf, Rose V and the caregivers will have the entire 2 hours in their own discussion and the rest of the group will gather for patient discussion. We hope you and your caregiver can make this meeting.

HELPING HANDS – I typically arrive around 9:00/9:15 to arrange chairs, set up food and lay out materials. If anyone is able to plan in advance to assist with set up, please let me know. If you are unable to arrive early, assistance with clean up afterwards is just as helpful. I hope to see you at the next meeting.
