Kristin Olliney and Isabella

"She’s come really far … but she has a long journey ahead of her, but we’ll take that together, too."

In 2010, Kristin Olliney and her daughter Isabella's lives were changed forever when Isabella came down with sudden acute encephalitis, which caused brain damage. Despite the number of challenges they face every day, Isabella and her mother face them head on and work on her rehabilitation every day.

2014 Educational Workshops for Professionals

Are you a direct care worker or program manager in need of sufficient training to perform your job? The complexity of brain injury often makes it difficult for staff to create safe and clinically appropriate cultures for people to thrive and be part of their communities.   

The Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts (BIA-MA) and the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission (MRC) are hosting one clinical workshop and four training workshops in April, May and June. Participants will gain a basic overview of the epidemiology, acute and long-term consequences of traumatic brain injury.
