Concussion (Traumatic Brain Injury) Education Session

Categories: FeaturedTags: Author:

A few weeks ago Caring Circle organized and hosted a Concussion (Traumatic Brain Injury) Education Session with guest speakers including a brain health expert physician, a physiotherapist, two counsellors, and an educator.It was well attended and we know that there were others who wanted to attend but their schedules didn’t jive. So we’ve created this VERY SHORT survey to ascertain if there is any interest in providing some follow up programming with guest speakers that might cover topics we didn’t get around to in the first two hour session. We are wanting to know if there is a need on Island for a support group? walking group? education? tools to help you cope? What is it you need to support your healing process? Please fill out this survey to give us a sense of the needs in the community in this regard – it will just take 5′. And you need to press “submit” before this Saturday at 6 p.m. when the survey closes.
