FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LOS ANGELES, CA, (NeuroPraxis) — NeuroPraxis, an outcome-oriented home, and community brain injury program announced that its Founder and CEO, Christine Weaver, will be presenting a live webinar for the Brain Injury Association of America on TBI and Aging.

This is a Carolyn Rocchio Caregivers live webinar featuring Christine Weaver, MAS, OTR/L, CLCP, CBIS, C/NDT. Airs live at 3 p.m. EST July 28, 2021.

The webinar entitled: BRAIN INJURY, AGING, AND PLANNING FOR THE FUTURE will focus on understanding the effects of aging and how caregivers can plan for those functional implications.

The acute and chronic effects of traumatic brain injury (TBI) have been widely described; however, as individuals with brain injury age, caregivers encounter unique situations and decisions related to care and planning for the future.

Christine Weaver will discuss the effects of aging on brain injury and the impact this has on approaches to care.

Ms. Weaver has been an occupational therapist specializing in neurological rehabilitation for the last 30 years. She is a medical-legal expert and has helped pioneer post-acute brain rehabilitation and improved the quality of life for hundreds of patients.

Christine received a Masters Degree in Health Law from the University of California, San Diego, and is certified by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT) since 1992 and the Board of Occupational Therapy in California (CBOT). She is also a certified life care planner by the International Commission on Health Care Certification (ICHCC).
