Houston WALK to End Hydrocephalus
Saturday, November 4th


Please welcome our 2023 Honorary Chair, Dr. Jamie Wright
Jamie Wright
Jamie Wright, MD, PhD, originally from Texas, is a neurology resident at the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington. She did a combined MD/PhD program at the University of Texas at Houston McGovern Medical School. She was inspired to pursue a career in both neurology and research by her own experiences growing up with a chronic neurological condition, congenital hydrocephalus. She has been a volunteer for the Hydrocephalus Association since 2012 when she started a support group in Houston for individuals and families affected by hydrocephalus and is now leading a community network in Seattle. Outside of medicine, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, crocheting, and hanging out with her cat, Abigail Bagel.
