9th Annual Pacific Northwest Brain Injury Conference 2011 Living with Brain Injury: Thriving in Changing Times
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is the leading killer and cause of disability in children and young adults. More than two million head injuries occur each year, and the highest rate of injury occurs in young men between the ages of 15 and 24. Hundreds of thousands of military and civilians have sustained TBIÊ¼s due to the current war. TBI (often caused by traumas such as auto accidents, falls, assaults and violence or sports injuries), is an impairment of brain functioning that is physically or psychologically verifiable. Most survivors of TBI will have their lives severely impacted in all areas.
BIAOR, in partnership with The Brain Injury Association of Washington and the Western States Brain Injury Alliance, is hosting this two day conference to address questions regarding what is being done about the increasing incidence of TBI, the new treatments and therapies, legislative measures, services and products available, and what supports are available for teachers, veterans, professionals, family members and survivors. Over 70 renowned experts in the field of brain injury will be presenting.
A pre-conference March 3 will provide CBIST Certification Continuing Education Credits: CME, CRCC, CDMC, SLP, CLE, OT, SLP.
