Pushor Mitchell Symposium on Brain Injury
In partnership with Pushor Mitchell LLP, we've been holding this annual educational event in Kelowna for over 25 years. Known as the 'go-to' opportunity for learning, inspiration, and best practices around brain injury, this symposium is well-attended by medical professionals, non-profit support workers, caregivers, families, and individuals dealing with brain injury.
Each year we bring in a line-up of qualified, professional speakers who address a variety of topics. Pictured at right are former hockey players, Kerry Goulet and Keith Primeau kicking off the 2018 Pushor Mitchell Symposium on Brain Injury. They engaged the audience with an honest discussion on the topic of 'Concussions and Hockey.' This was the first time that our Symposium took the form of a series of TEDx-style talks which we called BRAINx.
