Enewsletter 2 Child Brain Injury Trust Conference and Exhibition

Home/Enewsletter 2 Child Brain Injury Trust Conference and Exhibition

Wednesday 26th March saw us host our 7th conference and exhibition and this year we had a new venue- The Etihad Stadium, Manchester (home to Manchester City). With a rapidly changing landscape in childhood acquired brain injury and with record numbers attending, it promised to be a great day. Rather than let us talk about how good the day was, we thought it would be far more interesting for you to read about the conference from a parents perspective. So Charmian Johnson whose son has an acquired brain injury wrote a blog for us about the conference.
