    The conference curriculum will appeal to social workers, therapists, psychologists, physiatrists, nurses, researchers, administrators, advocates, individuals with brain injury, and family members affected by brain injury. Presentation formats will include lectures, panel discussions, and interactive workshops. Peer-reviewed symposia and poster presentations will be an integral part of the program, allowing for the sharing of information regarding research and innovative multidisciplinary treatment approaches.
