The conference, backed by the Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) State Partnership Program, the Trauma Rehabilitation Resources Program and the Arkansas Department of Health, is a free educational event for Arkansans living with brain injury, as well as their family members, friends and caregivers. It will feature educational activities and a neuropsychology panel. Additionally, Constance Tullis, who serves on the Arkansas Brain Injury Council, will share her survivor story.

This event is not for health care providers, but they are encouraged to share details about the conference with survivors and caregivers.
