Across the Care Continuum: Community-Based Services & Support for Individuals with an ABI (October 31, 2014)

The Toronto ABI Network sponsored a half day information session on October 31, 2014 at St. John’s Rehab – Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre to refresh knowledge on services and supports available to those living with an ABI in the community.
