Living with Hydrocephalus Event at JSUMC, Nov. 9

Hydrocephalus affects approximately 1 million Americans, in every stage of life, from infants to the elderly. It affects people in all walks of life, from every socioeconomic background. One out of every 1,000 babies are born with hydrocephalus, making it as common as Down’s syndrome and more common than spina bifida or brain tumors. Learn about signs, symptoms and treatment at Hackensack Meridian Health’s free ‘Living with Hydrocephalus’ event Saturday, November 9, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., in Jersey Shore University Medical Center’s HOPE Tower, 19 Davis Ave., Neptune, NJ.
