The Margaret Hackett Family Program
in CNS Congenital Anomalies
The Margaret Hackett Family Program is committed to a multi-disciplinary approach while establishing: 1) Wholesome care and communication for patients and their families affected by central nervous system (CNS) congenital anomalies, 2) Research initiatives aimed at bettering patient care and outcomes, and 3) The development of knowledge and education for patients and their providers. This multi-disciplinary approach provides a greater understanding of the different circumstances and mechanisms that may drive the development of CNS anomalies, their ability to cause disease, and the emotional, psychological, and developmental toll that may result from their development.
