UW Health Stroke Program News

Dear UW Health 2013 Stroke Camper:

Happy 2014 from your friends at UW Health. It has been a while since you’ve heard from us and we wanted to keep you apprised of the latest developments and plans.

2013 Stroke Camp Reunion

Since we see your pictures every day on our Stroke Camp calendar (and miss you), we decided to add a new event so we can stay connected. The Stroke Camp Reunion will be held in Madison, Wisconsin on Saturday, May 3, 11:00- 3:00, and all of you (and your loved ones) are invited. We will have a lunch, a brief presentation and plenty of time to mix and mingle. The location is Elver Park on Madison’s west side: more details are available at the web page listed below.

There is no cost to you for the reunion but we are asking for an RSVP for planning purposes. F
or more information and registration you can go to: uwhealth.org/strokecampreunion 

2014 Retreat and Refresh Stroke Camp

We have decided to host our next Stroke Camp Sept. 19-21, 2014, at the Green Lake, Wisconsin, Green Lake Conference Center. One difficult issue is how to maintain the same number of attendees (so that our discussion groups stay a reasonable size) and yet enable new stroke survivors to have the same camp experience that you found so valuable. Our goal is to create a good mix of former attendees and new ones at the 2014 camp.

We have decided to open up thirteen spots for new survivors and seven for returning survivors. When your registration and deposit is received, you will be contacted by RRSC and acknowledged as either an attendee or on the waiting list.

If new attendees have not filled the available spots by July 15, the remaining spots will be available for returning attendees from the waiting list. All spots are on a first come, first serve basis so please submit a registration form to Retreat & Refresh Stroke Camp  
(strokecamp.org) right away if you’re interested.

Besides the events listed above, we hope to see you at the UW Health Support Group (which meets the third Thursday of each month), or at least hear from you on our Facebook page 
(search for Aneurysm/Stroke Friends).

Sincerely,
Chris Whelley, MSN, CNRN
UW Health Stroke Program Coordinator
