HealthThe Northeast Psychoneuroimmunology Institute (NEPNI.org) is excited to present “From Surviving to Thriving: Making your Brain Work for You," a talk by honored guest Chris Pratt, founder of the Brain Injury Association of Vermont. This will take place on Wednesday, February 27 from 7 to 9 pm in the graduate student lounge at the Marlboro College Graduate School, 28 Vernon St. in Brattleboro, Vermont.

Chris is a brain-injury survivor and author of the Brain Sense program. He will discuss the physical challenges he faced and the mind/body strategies he employed to maximize his own brain function recovery. These precepts are applicable to anyone facing cognitive decline due to health, injury, or simply the aging process, and can often mean the difference between surviving any neurological impairment and thriving.

NEPNI is dedicated to harnessing the potential and power of your mind to assist in health, healing, and enhancing memory. This event will also serve to inform people about upcoming NEPNI classes and support groups. This is also a fundraiser and donations are hoped for, but not required. Money raised will go toward scholarships so that the NEPNI classes are financially accessible to all.

This event is co-sponsored by the Brain Injury Association of Vermont, Green Mountain Crossroads, Sojourns Community Health Clinic and the Warrior Connection.

For more information contact Michael Gigante at (802)254-8032/mgigante@myfairpoint.net or Rupa Cousins at rupa@together.net. The Grad Center has plenty of free parking.
