Women and Brain Injury: A Sizable Minority

The Brain injury Association of Connecticut's Annual Conference on March 11, 2011 (Rocky Hill, CT) features Lakeview's Dr. Tina Trudel presenting on women's issues in TBI (http://biact.homestead.com).  The factors unique to women’s injuries and outcomes have remained largely overlooked. This presentation will address the prevalence and epidemiology of TBI in women, and the specific differences that women typically experience in the recovery process. Additional topics will include domestic violence and TBI, sexuality, emotional dysregulation, primary role alteration, employment, physical disabilities, long term health concerns, and women as care providers.
