The Elder Abuse Prevention ON (EAPO) invites you to join in the next two installments of their June webinar series marking Brain Injury Awareness Month
Partnering with the Ontario Brain Injury Association (OBIA) and the Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation (ONF), subject matter experts will address the correlation between concussions and elder abuse. Presentations, supported by current research findings and shared stories from lived experiences, will provide participants with vital information about how concussions can impact cognitive functioning and lead to abuse.
Join EAPO, OBIA and ONF as we host these two informative sessions to learn more about how concussions are impacting an aging population, what strategies we can employ to help and where to seek assistance when dealing with concussions.
