Please join us May 4th – 6th in Naramata, BC for BrainTrust Canada’s annual Okanagan Conference on Brain Injury. This interactive conference allows clients, care-givers and professionals to not only receive excellent information but to also gain personal support and insights to brain injury.
This years conference theme is Gaining Ground: Topics in Continuing Brain Injury Recovery. As service providers, we at BrainTrust Canada see how individuals have difficulties with the transitions from the acute-care setting to rehabilitation and then from rehabilitation to getting on with life. This year we are proud to bring in presenters who will provide practical skills for living well through the challenges of brain injury.
