28th Annual Family & Professionals Conference

28th Annual Family & Professionals Conference

The 28th Annual Family & Professionals Conference is fast approaching! Join us on Friday, October 13th at the Davis Conference Center in Layton, Utah. We are delighted to announce this year’s keynote speaker is Mark L. Fox, Speech Language Pathologist at Intermountain Healthcare.

Our conference theme, “Building Connections for a Brighter Tomorrow,” focuses, not only on rebuilding the neuropathways after traumatic brain injury, but also building the connections of community, friendship and trust amongst survivors, caregivers and professionals.

Those of us who have travailed the darkness after brain injury, either personally, in a family, or as a provider have also learned to appreciate the brightness of healing and hope that comes by putting one foot in front of the other and carrying forward each and every day, despite the obstacles.

It is our mission to help facilitate that connection for each person whom we serve at the Brain Injury Alliance of Utah, and who attends this year’s conference!
