Just 10 years ago we opened the doors to the Brown Center, adding four pools and a variety of adaptive aquatic exercise programs to our already successful land-based programs at the Center of Achievement. From the movable floor pool with its varying depths to accomodate people of all ages--including small children--to the whirlpools with the power to relax muscle spacticity, the Brown Center was the fulfillment of a dream championed by Dr. Sam Britten, founder and former director (retired) of the Center of Achievement.
Join the clients, families, friends, faculty, staff, and the CSUN community for a celebratory reception and tours of the Brown Center.
When: Saturday, November 2nd, 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Where: The Abbott and Linda Brown Western Center for Adaptive Aquatic Therapy "The Brown Center" on the CSUN Campus at Lindley and Plummer.
Parking: When you RSVP you'll get information about parking.
RSVP by October 16th to
Since 1971, when the land-based programs at the Center of Achievement were established, we have relied on the consistent and enthusiastic support of the community and friends. From one act of kindness to the next, the spirit of caring that epitomizes the Center of Achievement and the Brown Center has created a number of funds that continue to support the Center.
