Orange County Stroke Rehab Network
8th Annual Educational Workshop
November 2017

Many thanks to all who attended the seventh annual OCSRN Stroke Educational Workshop that was held on November 18, 2017, 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 Crean College of Health and Behavioral Sciences, 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 Program for their help!
