Brain Injury Conversation March 21
MORRISVILLE – Copley Hospital will host an informational session on brain injury, a free community conversation with Copley’s Certified Brain Injury Specialist, Megan McCartney, at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, March 21, at the Copley Hospital Rehabilitation Center.
Information presented will cover the different types of brain injury and its effects, how symptoms can be managed with treatment and how family and friends can help in the healing process.
Many brain injuries are not permanent and significantly improve with therapy. For those who are living with or have recently suffered a brain injury this is an informational session. The evening talk will also address how symptoms of brain injury can be managed with treatment to improve one’s quality of life.
McCartney has her Master’s in Occupational Therapy from New York University. While working as an occupational therapist at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota she knew she wanted to return to her New England roots. She was hired at Copley and with a growing demand, the brain injury program at Copley has added additional occupational therapists to meet the needs of the community.
McCartney encourages family and friends to attend this free discussion. To register, call (802) 888-8133.
