Think Big 2020 Brain Injury in Georgia Conference January 31-February 1

January 31, 2020 - February 1, 2020

Please join us for Think BIG2020, a conference for healthcare professionals. It is presented by Shepherd Center and the Brain Injury Association of Georgia (BIAG). This conference will provide clinical tools that rehabilitation professionals can use to improve their care of individuals with brain injury – from acute care through the transition back to the community. The day will conclude with a panel of providers discussing long-term care topics, such as family/caregiver considerations and how to plan for long-term special needs and financial resources. Attendees will leave with new ideas and resources to understand the needs of people with brain injury and ways to support long-term success.

Friday January 31 – Saturday February 1, 2020
