Local Meeting Option

One of the commitments of ANA/NJ is to help organize local ‘satellite’ meetings for acoustic neuroma patients, friends and family who have found it difficult to attend our regular meetings because of their distant location. At a local meeting there would be the important opportunity to share experiences, ask questions and get to know other patients. If you have been unable to attend regular meetings, would you be interested in hosting a ‘satellite’ meeting in your area? It can be in your home or elsewhere, and can be a one-time or ongoing event. ANA/NJ will help contact patients in your local area and assist with expenses as needed. For information, please contact Wilma Ruskin at 609-510-9039.



 We are happy to provide scholarships to assist AN patients for attendance at general meetings and in support of local meetings initiated by ANA/NJ members.  For information, please contact Jane Huck at 908-725-0233 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
