Origami Hosts 9th Annual Brain Injury Symposium 

Former NFL Lineman George Visger Featured

 

Mason, MI – Origami Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center will host the 9th Annual Brain Injury Symposium of Mid-Michigan on Thursday, June 4, 2015 at the Eagle Eye Banquet Center.  The Symposium will take place from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM.

 

This unique annual event brings together expert speakers and nearly 200 industry professionals for a day-long event designed to promote awareness and education of cutting-edge brain injury rehabilitation science and philosophy.  As the area’s leading brain injury education event, attendee seats and vendor space have sold out for the 4th straight year.

 

The day’s agenda will be highlighted by a keynote address from former NFL lineman and brain injury survivor George Visger, offering a candid look at this life as a sports-related brain injury survivor and tireless advocate for awareness, education, and prevention of brain injury.  The event will also include presentations on topics such as hunting and shooting safety and the risks and benefits of assistive technology.  The agenda will conclude with a lively, moderated discussion on the use of medical marijuana in the treatment of brain injury.  Mr. Visger will be available for scheduled interviews from 10:00 AM (following his keynote address) to 11:00.  Interview times outside of this window may be accommodated.

 

Further, over 15 organizations will exhibit at the Symposium, adding value for attendees with a keen interest in industry-related goods and services.
