In celebration of Brain Injury Awareness Month, Bancroft NeuroRehab  will host an inspiring evening of personal tales, triumphs, insights and special moments, at “Bancroft Unplugged.” Bancroft Unplugged is a exciting opportunity to learn directly from those who are affected, and to be inspired by their courage and perseverance. The free event will feature brief autobiographical speeches by people with brain injuries.Each person’s speech represents the progress in his or her rehabilitation to date – which can be months or even years. In fact, preparation for the evening is, in itself, a key component of the speakers’ rehab. The speeches tap skills gained through cognitive, speech and occupational therapy, among others. A brief reception will be held after the speeches, and light refreshments will be served. Advance registration is requested. Please contact Carla Donegan at or at 609-206-0081.
