Santa Clara Brain Injury Conference Feb. 23-25
The 2012 Santa Clara Valley Brain Injury Conference: Building on the Legacy of Coma to Community, takes place Feb. 23-25, 2012, at the Dolce Hayes Mansion in San Jose, California. There is still time to secure your spot at the west coast's premier brain injury conference! Go here for more information and to register.
Five reasons you do not want to miss this event:
1. The content: From cutting-edge stem cell research to practical rehabilitation and post-acute applications, this event has more than 40 sessions and is filled to the brim with useful information. Concurrent sessions cover return to work and community, medical complexity, innovative treatment approaches, advocacy, and military and veteran issues.
2. The speakers: This is your opportunity to listen, meet and network with the leaders in the field of brain injury treatment. Keynote presenters include Chris Nowinski, co-founder and president of the Sports Legacy Institute; Alan Brightman, vice president of Global Accessibility at YAHOO!; George Visger, TBI advocate and former defensive tackle for the San Francisco 49ers; and Dr. Shane Mcnamee, M.D., medical director General Inpatient Rehabilitation & Chief PM&R Service.
3. The value: The conference is held at the beautiful Dolce Hayes Mansion in San Jose. Breakfast and lunch are being provided as part of the low 2-day cost of $400 (or 1-day cost of $200). Pair this with the number of CME hours provided (13 hours for the general conference, up to 19 hours for both the pre-conference and the general conference) and you have an educational value that can't be beat. Some brain injury conferences offering far less variety are charging from two to five times this registration cost.
4. The recognition: This event has been endorsed by the American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine, the Brain Injury Association of America, and the International Brain Injury Association. You can't have a better pedigree.
5. The venue: San Jose weather is generally mild in late February and the venue itself brings a major contribution to the conference. The resort-like setting with its built-in amenities and a low level of distraction make it easier to focus on the information and the people. The site provides a more intimate sense of a retreat. Close to San Francisco, the wine country, and the beach. What more could you ask for in a location?
The Santa Clara Valley Brain Injury Conference is planned in collaboration with a host of community-based service providers, including Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, the Veterans Administration, the Department of Rehabilitation, and the Brain Injury Association of California.
