Let’s talk about brain health and brain injury

To coincide with the World Congress on Brain Injury, the Global Brain Health Institute presents this satellite symposium as an opportunity to explore brain injury and brain health from the perspective of Global Atlantic Fellows for Equity in Brain Health.

Four leading experts in the world of brain injury from a variety of disciplines will offer their expertise to examine brain injury as a brain health issue over the life course.  The symposium will involve four presentations, followed by a panel discussion.


The session will be chaired by Gráinne McGettrick, Atlantic Fellow for Equity in Brain Health and Research and Policy Manager in Acquired Brain Injury Ireland.
