The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and the Military Families Learning Network are partnering with the Defense Health Agency’s Traumatic Brain Injury Centers of Excellence to present a webinar at 10 a.m. on Nov. 30.
The free webinar, called “Interactive Self-Care Workshop for Military and Veteran TBI Caregivers,” will address topics of interest to caregivers and focus on the care of current and former military service members with traumatic brain injuries.
“November is National Family Caregivers Month, and this webinar provides information and insights into traumatic brain injury caregiver resources, concerns, self-care strategies and current research,” said Rachel Brauner, AgriLife Extension specialist with Military Programs, part of AgriLife Extension’s Family and Community Health Unit, Bryan-College Station.
“It is important to acknowledge the physical, emotional and financial toll caregiving takes, and the webinar will address ways in which caregivers can also care for themselves and improve their quality of life.”
