Today I participated as a panelist for the Synapse National Future Leaders in Brain Injury Conference. In preparation of the conference I created a document to share answers to the below questions.
I did so because of the limited amount of time for the panel discussion, and my interest to provide answers to review as a resource.
Click on this link to review the answers with correlating and empowering quotes.
