Renberg Presents as part of "When Brains Collide" Lecture Series


Headway's Sarah Renberg teamed up with Dr. Michael Lewis, a local Maryland TBI/Brain Health specialist, for "When Brain's Collide," a monthly educational lecture series on concussion in the DC area.

The goal of the series is to educate the community about concussion as an injury, showcase latest discoveries in concussion management, and provide insight into the less mainstream methods of treatment such as vision therapy, nutrition, and neck based physical therapy. 

The series kicked off May 11th at the Potomac Community center.  Both families and clinicians attended. 

Renberg spoke about her personal experience with concussion, her work as Headway's Program Development Coordinator and its exciting initiatives, and answered questions from the audience.

Keep a lookout for the next lecture in the series!
