Orange County Stroke Rehab Network
4th Annual Educational Workshop
November 2013


Many thanks to all who attended the fourth annual OCSRN Stroke Educational Workshop that was held on November 16, 2013, at Chapman University. Nearly two hundred therapists, nurses, researchers, and other rehabilitation professionals attended the event, which was co-sponsored by the UC Irvine Brain Repair Center, Chapman University’s Department of Physical Therapy and Dr. Steven Cramer’s Laboratory at the University of California, Irvine. We also thank the wonderful student volunteers from Chapman’s Doctor of Physical Therapy and Master’s in Communication Disorders Programs for their help.
