The Summit Is Underway...

Orlando, Florida officially became the focal point of the LPAA and aphasia care last night. UCF Aphasia House and Brooks Rehabilitation hosted early arriving attendees at an open house that showcased the innovative work going on at both institutions.

The evening was one part reconnecting with old friends and one part starting to make new connections. In his welcoming comments, Todd Von Deak, Aphasia Access' Executive Director asked attendees to make a point to meet at least one new person while in Orlando. He reminded those in attendance that "the connections you make that you carry on after the summit will serve you well for years to come."
