Resilience in the Brain and Beyond

Monday, November 23, 2020 at 5:00pm to 6:00pm

Virtual Event

We are Synapse National at the University of Oregon! We are a student-run advocacy and awareness group created to serve the Eugene/Springfield area's growing community of brain injury survivors. Join us for our webinar: Resilience in the Brain and Beyond!

Our guest speakers Dr. Linville and Aaron Rothbart are from our very own HEDCO clinic, David Kracke is the Oregon Brain Injury Advocate Coordinator at CBIRT, as well as Ben Luskin who is a local community collaborator, who will be speaking from his own experience on behalf of the brain injury community. They will all be bringing their unique expertise from practice, research, education, and lived experience to discuss resilience; both in the brain and while managing a chronic medical condition like brain injury. Please come if interested, or forward to anyone who might benefit! Our goal is to build brain injury awareness and strengthen community resources, so ALL are welcome!

If you are interested, but unable to attend, we encourage you to register anyway. We will be sending out a recording to all registered attendees after the webinar event.

Synapse is also hiring! If you are interested in gaining experience with service, outreach, and advocacy, please fill out our member application below:

If you are a brain injury survivor and interested in joining our bi-weekly peer support group, please email us at to be added to our mailing list.
