Brain Injury Conference Best Ever

Wow! Best conference ever! We’re thrilled with the recent turnout for the 2017 Brain Injury Conference sponsored by CHI St. Vincent. What started in 2011 has expanded each year from 60 to more than 270. Thanks to Karolyn Thompson, director of rehab services, for her leadership for the educational event.

Participants include nurses, physical therapist, occupational therapist, speech pathologists, case managers, social workers, recreational therapists, etc. Attendees come from all over Arkansas and the surrounding states.

This is the only conference in the state of Arkansas that offers education specifically regarding brain injury.

Also thanks to other sponsors: NeuroRestorative Timber Ridge; Arkansas Trauma Rehabilitation Program; HealthSouth and Baptist Rehabilitation Institute.

CHI St. Vincent speakers have included Dr. Krisht, Dr. DeCastro, and Dr. Wilbur (this year).
