The Rat Lungworm (RLW) Support Group will have a meeting on Wednesday, Dec. 12, 2018, at the Kea‘au Community Center from 4 to 6 p.m.

They will have a new and improved format to the meetings thanks to the valuable input of  survivors.

At the last meeting, support group members agreed to allow live streaming so survivors living elsewhere in the state, mainland and abroad have an opportunity to participate. Log-in information to stream the meeting is forthcoming.

Agenda:

  • Introductions
  • Documentary: “Beyond the Fear” (32 minutes)
  • Case Study Discussion: “A specialized exercise programme for a patient suffering from eosinophilic meningitis” from the International Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation (March 2010),
  • Group Support: Triumphs, challenges, and life hacks—RLW survivors and their caregivers discuss living with the after effects of the disease.
  • Topics and plans for next meeting
  • Mahalo for attending

The Kea‘au Community Center is located at 16-186 Pili Mua St. in Kea‘au.
