RLF in the Community: “Living with TBI: a Conversation on Working, Socializing, and Thriving”

Living with TBI: a Conversation on Working, Socializing, and Thriving

In partnership with Duquesne University Office of Military and Veteran Students, Veterans Breakfast Club, and  The Wecht Institute of Forensic Science and Law, Resurrecting Lives Foundation founder Chrisanne Gordon, MD, will host a panel discussion this month on Living with TBI. This community conversation will focus on those who’ve experienced traumatic brain injury and have learned not only to live with it, but to thrive. TBI has been a lesser-known injury until relatively recently, as veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan began returning home with head injuries that disrupted brain function.

Special guest is slated to be Dr. Cyril Wecht, nationally acclaimed forensic expert whose work has been utilized in high profile cases involving Mary Jo Kopechne, Sunny von Bulow, Jean Harris, Dr. Jeffrey McDonald, the Waco Branch Davidian fire, and Vincent Foster.

Light refreshments will be offered, followed by the program, which is free and open to the public.  Join us on September 24 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm in the Africa Room in the Student Union, Duquesne University (1000 Locust St, Pittsburgh, PA 15219). Discounted $6 parking is available at Forbes Parking Garage. RSVP to ellie@veteransbreakfastclub.com or 412-623-9029
