Both Dr. Gainer and I are attending the Southwest Conference on Disability this week in Albuquerque, NM, where Dr. Gainer will be presenting a talk entitled “What Happens When Rehab Ends.”
So far, the conference has provided a wealth of information and resources for people with disabilities. Each session regarding brain injury has been “standing room only,” as brain injury issues are moving to the forefront of concern for many practitioners, advocates, and survivors. So far, this seminar has tackled tough issues ranging from sexual health to substance abuse and neurobehavioral treatment options.
The conference continues until Friday afternoon. Our booth is located right next to the Christopher Reeve Foundation, so if you’re attending the conference or live in the area, please stop by the Albuquerque Convention Center downtown and say hello.
