Brain Injury & Resource Facilitation Regional Conference

The Inaugural Brain Injury & Resource Facilitation Regional Conference was held regionally across the state in October 2016. The conferences were a great success with over 120 people in total attending the three regions: Northern Indiana (South Bend), Central Indiana (Indianapolis) and Southern Indiana (French Lick).

Thank you to all who attended. We look forward to 2017 when we meet again. Planning is already underway, stay tuned for information as it develops.
Dr. Trexler introduces the goals of the conference at the Southern Regional Conference held October 18 and 19 at the French Lick Springs Hotel.

2016 Awards: "It takes a village"

The 2016 Brain Injury and Resource Facilitation Regional Conferences provided the setting this year that allowed us to honor outstanding achievements and commitment to those impacted by brain injury.
