Join us on June 11, 2024 at the Delta Grand Resort Conference Centre for a transformative day of collaboration and learning at the Pushor Mitchell LLP West Coast Brain Injury Conference (WCBIC)!

In line with this year’s theme, “Current Issues and Emerging Solutions”, our focus is to explore the nexus of brain injury with crucial frameworks such as health, governance, and societal fairness and inclusion.

Our keynote speaker, Dr. Angela Colantonio, will focus on the highlights of major research on traumatic brain injury on underserved populations in Canada. This will include findings on rehabilitation for individuals with brain injury relevant to the context of homelessness, the criminal justice system and gender based violence.

Other speaker topics will highlight understanding the nature of brain injury, and advocating for its classification as a chronic condition within the healthcare system; emphasizing the importance of comprehensive care frameworks to support individuals and families affected by brain injury; and explore global efforts for a chronic designation for TBI to align with emerging solutions and facilitate international collaboration in research and policy development.

Don’t miss this opportunity to engage with inspiring change-makers and leading minds in the field of brain injury, public health, and politics. Together, let’s pave the way for breakthroughs in brain injury research, policy, and care.
