Show Notes

Welcome to the 2019 Brain Injury Conference - Brain Injury Rehabilitation: The Health & Wellness Connection sponsored by Kessler Institute Rehabilitation and Kessler Foundation.

Each year, an estimated 2.8 million Americans sustain a traumatic brain injury and face a wide range of physical, functional, emotional and social challenges. This course will focus on the importance of an individual’s overall health and wellness in rehabilitation and recovery. Topics will include personal identity, cognition and memory, maintaining relationships and the capacity to return to fitness and other physical activities.

Listen to the lecture podcasts on “Maximizing Recovery After Brain Injury”, “Relationships after TBI”, “Cognition and Memory after TBI”, and “BMI in TBI: When is it Safe to Exercise?” presented by experts from Kessler Institute Rehabilitation and Kessler Foundation. See faculty below.

What is Traumatic Brain Injury Research?

After traumatic brain injury (TBI), life changes forever for individuals and families. Through research, we develop new ways to help individuals recover cognitive function and mobility, and equip families and caregivers with the long-term support they need to adjust to living with brain injury.
