Waisman Center awarded Evjue grant to expand Day with the Experts series

The Evjue Foundation, the charitable arm of the Capital Times, has awarded the Waisman Center $8,000 to expand the accessibility and reach of its free, community-oriented Day with the Experts series.

The four Waisman Center Day with the Experts educational events focus on autism, cerebral palsy, cochlear implants and Down syndrome. The series features presentations by Waisman Center researchers and clinicians, as well as panel discussions with individuals and family members who share their experiences and expertise. In 2015-2016, more than a thousand individuals attended these events or accessed them online.

This grant was part of $1.2 million in grants by the Evjue Foundation to 94 area nonprofits, and includes funding for 28 programs at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, totaling $300,000.
