I’m very pleased to share that Dr. Lucie Pelland, Queens University Professor in the School of Rehabilitation Therapy will join Rachael Henry, ABI System Navigator in a talk on Concussion Awareness, based on her extensive research on the impacts of concussion in youth development. The talk will be held at the Centre for Rational and Cognitive Therapies, 243 Perth Street, Brockville on Wednesday November 25th from 6:30 – 8:00 pm.
Dr. Pelland has both clinical and research experience with children who have experienced brain injury and developmental disabilities. A fundamental goal of Dr. Pelland’s research is to develop rehabilitation interventions that will optimize neural plasticity, child function, and safe participation in sport. As ABI System Navigator, Rachael will provide information on concussion resources available locally as well as a review of tools that parents and coaches can utilize to assess injury and return to activity.
The event is free, however registration is required. Please contact the Starr Langstaff at the Centre at 613-342-8140 or email [email protected].
