Brain injury conference

The TBI confer­ence provides a unique venue for the exchange of ideas and infor­ma­tion across public and private sectors. This event repre­sents an oppor­tu­nity for individ­uals living with TBI, family caregivers, and profes­sionals from across the state to gather in one spot for mutual learning across disci­plines, perspec­tives, and experi­ences. We hope you’ll be a part of this exchange.
