What a great way to start the year! A personal story and a chat discussing brain injury, including concussion, education, and trying to help others! I talk to the Vice President off the board of the Newfoundland and Labrador Brain Injury Association (NLBIA) Dr. Jennifer Smith. Jennifer is an NLBIA board colleague and friend of mine. She tells of her cerebellar stroke and her desire to educate others about brain injury in its many forms. We also talk about our hopes for the NLBIA this year and how awareness is a vital component in treating a brain injury.
Dr. Jennifer Smith is also an instructor and researcher at the Marine Institute of Memorial University of Newfoundland.
