Event description

Description

Watson Centre Society for Brain Health is dedicated to improving the outcomes and quality of life of individuals who have experienced a brain injury (or concussion). Active rehabilitation is the best way to target your brain's ability to heal, and it is never too late to start.

As a way of sharing our knowledge of evidence-based practices to the survivors that need it most, community members are now able to attend free programs and events on days our registered program is closed.

Check out our other regular events on Eventbrite.

Learn about the WCSBH program and how it is changing lives and the narrative around brain injury recovery here.


Research Reviews: Brain Health and Nutrition is a group for anyone with brain injury that is looking for new ways to challenge their minds, is interested in brain health research and would like to engage in a group discussion with other brain injury survivors! If this sounds like you, come join us for this cognitive challenge at the Watson Centre Society for Brain Health on every 2nd Friday from 12:00-1:30pm.

Each month we will review a scientific research article or TedTalk related to brain injury rehabilitation, neuroscience, brain health or nutrition! Nutrition-related topics will cycle every other month. You will learn how to uncover useful tips and information from research articles by critically reading scientific research and engaging in an active discussion about the article. Join us to learn new tips for supporting your recovery, all while being in a supportive group setting with like-minded individuals!


What you need to bring:

  • A notepad, pen and highlighters!

  • An interest in reading scientific journal articles!

  • Most importantly, an inquisitive and open mind!
