Travis Roy to Give Closing Keynote at HealthSouth Braintree's 37th Annual Neurorehabilitation Conference
What should have been one of Travis Roy’s happiest memories of playing in his first collegiate hockey game left him paralyzed from the neck down. At age 21, Roy’s life changed completely, but it was not necessarily for the worse.
Through his traumatizing experience, he found new light and new hope and will be sharing his message as the closing keynote speaker at HealthSouth Braintree Rehabilitation Hospital’s 37th Annual Neurorehabilitation Conference on Traumatic Brain Injury, Stroke and Other Neurologic Disorders on Nov. 12 and 13 at the Hyatt Regency Cambridge.
The conference offers continuing education for physicians, nurses, physical and occupational therapists, social workers, case managers as well as other clinicians, and will feature 22 speakers from all over the country that will speak to a variety of neurorehabilitation topics.
The opening keynote speaker is Alvaro Pascual-Leone, MD, PhD, a professor of neurology and an associate dean for clinical and translational research at Harvard Medical School. In addition, he serves as chief for the division of cognitive neurology and the director of the Berenson-Allen Center for Noninvasive Brain Stimulation at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. He will present on “Modulating Brain Networks to Promote Recovery from Brain Injury.”
Registration will be available on-site and leading up to the conference; but until Nov. 10, attendees may register at a rate of $250 for students, a one-day registration of $300 or a full registration for $525.
