It is free and open to the public.

At this meeting, guest speaker Courtney Brown will make her second presentation to the support group. Miss Brown is a former cheerleader who will discuss how a cheerleading injury has led to a 7-year struggle with Post-Concussion Syndrome and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Joining Ms. Brown will be her mother, Jeannie Brown. They will both address concussion and brain injury-related depression.
