Keynote Speaker Alison Delgado is TBI Survivor & Pediatrician
In 2010, just five short months after marrying her sweetheart and emergency medical resident Tim, Alison Delgado, sustained a severe traumatic brain injury and broken neck while riding her bicycle. Since that time Alison and her husband Tim have worked side by side in her recovery. As of 2011 she has undergone 12 surgeries to her brain, chest and jaw. With unmatched courage and determination, this husband and wife duo have defied obstacles, deterrents and despair. Both are now practicing physicians in Park City, Utah. Alison continues to be an avid runner. In fact, this past spring she participated in our 5K Run, Walk and Roll. She pummeled the race course, coming in a close 2nd overall with a lightening fast time of 19:39.
Please join us this October to hear her important message about thriving after a brain injury.
