The Tenth World Congress on brain injury is just two months away. I encourage everyone interested in traumatic brain rehabilitation to attend.
The World Congress is held biennially, and sponsored by the International Brain Injury Association. The IBIA World Congress is the largest gathering of international professionals working in the field of brain injury. Delegates are comprised of physicians, psychologists and neuropsychologists, therapists, social workers, nurses, case managers, legal professionals, advocates, and all others working in the field of brain injury. In 2012, over fourteen multi disciplinary professionals attended the Ninth World Congress held in Edinburg, Scotland.
The aim of the Tenth World Congress is to provide an opportunity for establishing collegial relationships with international professionals focused on the care and/or service of persons with acquired brain injury and/or the science of brain injury research. State of the art research will be presented dealing with information spanning from basic science to clinical aspects of brain injury.
While the Congress officially begins on March 20th, preconference workshops will be held on Wednesday, March 19th. For information on the preconference and conference schedule, please click here.
Most exciting from an attorney’s standpoint, is that the North America Brain Injury Society (NABIS) will be holding its Twenty-Seventh Annual Conference on the medical and legal aspects of traumatic brain injury. This conference will be held in conjunction with the World Congress in San Francisco.
I look forward to seeing everyone in San Francisco in March.
