I can’t believe it- DougTrails continues! Okay, I can believe it, but I’m still really really excited. On March 21, I’ll be a keynote speaker at the 2012 Brain Injury Association of DE‘s annual conference!
I can’t wait to share my stories with other survivors, therapists, healthcare professionals, psychologists, industry insiders and more at the event. This event is a conference, but it’s shaping up to be a brain injury conference that is very different, too!
Many conferences act as a way for professionals in the industry to connect and share methods and ideas… But this conference aims to help the brain injury survivors even beyond their months of hospital and specialist care. Being organized, designed, and planned by a traumatic brain injury survivor herself, Tracey Landmann, it will have a few different tracks. These ‘tracks’ will be different from eachother; one might make it so that people like me, TBI-survivors, can go and discover ways to promote their whole-life recoveries. Not just their cognitive skills, but everything.
I’ll be there with my fully-loaded (plus all the helmets) touring bike in the lobby, and I hope to pump everyone up for a day of learning, interacting, reflecting, and discovering potential. I’ll say it a billion times, we all can do amazing things. And yes, they’ll start (or continue) on March 21, 2012!
