On April 30 - May 2, 2014, the North American Brain Injury Society and the Alaska Brain Injury Network will join together to host the second quadrennial Alaska Brain Injury Conference in Anchorage!

This conference, entitled Shining a Light on Everyday Heroes; Supporting Brain Injury in Your Community, will have a strong focus on rural and underserved communities. Attendees will benefit from nationally and internationally recognized authorities on the subject of brain injury research, rehabilitation and long-term care.

From groundbreaking diagnostic and tele-medicine techniques, to community rehabilitation and reentry for successful lifelong living, an all-star cast of top researchers and clinicians will present the very latest in brain injury treatment and rehabilitation.

The conference will benefit all providers in Alaska, with specialty tracks specific for military and veterans (i.e. blast injuries and caring for wounded warriors) and tribal/rural topics (i.e. telehealth, using technology to delivery medical and community based services). 

Registration is NOW OPEN. Please click here for more details and to register for this exciting conference.
