WBRC Participates in TBI Forum

The WBRC recently participated in the 7th Annual Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Research Forum: Detection and Treatment of Sensory Deficits.  The forum was held on March 31, 2017 at the VA Palo Alto Healthcare System (VAPAHCS) main campus.  The event was sponsored by the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center (DVBIC), VAPAHCS Polytrauma System of Care and the WBRC. 

Katie Taylor, WBRC CNVR Coordinator, is a Certified Brain Injury Specialist and presented on “Dual Sensory Loss: A Case Study.”  It focused on deaf-blindness, its challenges and options available to Veteran patients that fall into this category. 

Thanks to the support and collaborative partnership between the WBRC and its colleagues who made the TBI Research Forum possible, the blind/visually impaired Veterans we serve will have access to the best resources and ground breaking information to enhance their quality of treatment.
