Nebraska Ataxia hosts monthly Support Group Activities which include Support Group Meetings and Social Events. The organization also hosts Fundraising Events throughout the year.

Support Group Meetings – During each Nebraska Ataxia support group meeting, an outside expert educates the group on a topic of interest to our members. Ataxians and caregivers then divide into two groups to discuss the issues and emotions at the forefront of their day with the assistance of certified mental health therapists. Nebraska Ataxia’s support group meets on the third Saturday of every other month.
