As the executive board of OCD Wisconsin is busy planning and looking forward to events for 2017, we would like to reflect on the successes of our past year. We would like to focus on one particular event, a community “Ask the Experts” presentation, which took place at Waukesha County Technical College for OCD Awareness Week. We were so fortunate to have Bradley Riemann, PhD, David Jacobi, PhD, and Nicholas Farrell, PhD, all from Roger’s Memorial Hospital, on our panel of experts. The evening began with OCD Wisconsin president, Denise Folcik, sharing her personal story, followed by the doctors sharing information and answering questions from the audience. We were able to provide refreshments and also videotape the presentation, which will be on our website. The feedback we received from the community was so positive and the hosting college was so impressed they’ve reached out regarding the possibility of putting on an all-day, OCD conference in October.
