Event on human development is Waisman Center at its best

Channel 3000 Editorial

The UW Madison’s Waisman Center maintains its status as a world class center dedicated to advancing knowledge about human development, developmental disabilities and neurodegenerative diseases through research, teaching and service.

It is exceedingly successful in all three areas, and is just as successful in a fourth area: community outreach.

This coming Saturday the Waisman Center will kick off its annual Day with the Experts Series, which are free community events where the public is invited to learn about the latest advances in clinical care and research surrounding some very common conditions.

The first features experts on Cerebral Palsy. Future days in January, March and May will focus on Autism, Down syndrome and cochlear implants. This is a terrific opportunity for anyone with questions about these conditions to get state of the art information from some of the best minds in the field.

Being part of the Waisman Center’s mission makes it no less generous and responsive. The Waisman Center is a tremendous community resource, and Day with the Experts is the Waisman Center at its best.
