STAMFORD, CT (February 5, 2014) – While the controversy over the eventual outcome of the NFL concussion lawsuit continues post-Super Bowl, the Brain Injury Alliance of Connecticut (BIAC) will hold its annual conference on traumatic brain injury (TBI) at the Hilton Hartford, 315 Trumbull St., Hartford, CT, on March 7. Silver Golub & Teitell is the presenting sponsor of the conference.
“The NFL lawsuit has raised the visibility of concussions dramatically in the mind of the general public, but we have been very aware of the importance of treatment, education and sharing information about brain injuries for many years,” said Paul A. Slager, a partner at the Stamford trial law firm of Silver Golub & Teitell LLP and former president of the BIAC. “We are delighted to once again support this very important conference and the work of the BIAC in raising awareness of both the prevention and treatment of brain injuries.”
The BIAC annual conference brings together hundreds of medical professionals, educators and service providers who will experience a full day of compelling discussion and education about brain injuries. Keynote speaker John D. Corrigan, Ph.D., Professor of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Ohio State University, will discuss “Epidemiology and Outcome of Rehabilitation for TBI in the U.S.” In addition, Jonathan M. Silver, M.D., Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, New York University School of Medicine, will discuss “Effort, Exaggeration and Malingering after Concussion.”
Other workshops will cover mood disorders after TBI, cognitive rehabilitation, brain imaging, discourse following a TBI, intimacy and sexuality following a TBI and vestibular therapy and brain injury.
