Many Mainers are living with the burden of a brain injury.
The University of Maine hosted a conference focused on those living with acquired brain injuries Friday.
The free event was open to the public.
It was organized by the Department of Health and Human Services.
Organizers hope attendees learned about the latest information on research, innovation, and treatment services.
Marie Hayes, a psychology professor at the University of Maine, hopes the event helps people find, “New friends, new contacts, new ideas of how to treat patients from the Maine community in a way that is cutting edge.”
Organizers say that rural portions of the northeast can often be isolated from the hot new trends in treatment.
