The Diamond Miners may have not won first prize at Pulpwood Queen Girlfriend Weekend Ball but we did make the The Daily Sentinel Sunday front page! “Dressed as a surly band of miners, Pulpwood Queens members bellied up to the bar for candy cigarettes and wine during the Great Big Ball of Hair Ball at Austin Hall Saturday night. The event closed out a weekend-long celebration and convention of new and established authors. Attendees dressed up as characters from literature or representations of books and stories.” (photography by Tim Monzingo)

Poster presentation at the International Brain Injury Association 10th World Congress


“IBIA World Congress is the largest gathering of international professionals working in the field of brain injury. Delegates are comprised of physicians, psychologists and neuropsychologists, therapists, social workers, nurses, case managers, legal professionals, advocates and all others working in the field of brain injury. Over 1400 multidisciplinary professionals attended the last Congress in Edinburgh, Scotland in 2012”.

The Congress program featured internationally recognized speakers, platform lectures, workshops, short oral presentations and poster sessions. The theme of the congress was Neurotrauma, Technology, and Neurorehabilitation.

Below are some photos taken during my presentation.
