Welcome to information about the 1st Annual Upper Midwest Regional Aphasia Group. The purpose of this group meeting is to BUILD RELATIONSHIPS, HAVE CONVERSATIONS, and SHARE STORIES with others in our area who have aphasia.
This event is put on by the Chippewa Valley Aphasia Group of the Eau Claire area. Aphasia group members are working on the program, the arrangements, etc.
This will be one big aphasia group. It will be a chance to meet others living with aphasia, and have conversations, with people who live in the upper Midwest.
We have events planned for Friday May 11th and Saturday morning, May 12th.
