A word from Dianne Henderson
“As the proud IPBIS Ambassador for the Jane Gillett Award, I would like to invite nominations from any professionals from any discipline who provide diagnosis or treatment to children and young adults with ABI.
Dr. Jane Gillett was a paediatric and adult neurologist who was at the forefront of brain injury treatment. In order to honor and always remember this outstanding woman and to stimulate others to provide services using her philosophies, the Board of Directors of IPBIS created the Jane Gillett Award.
This award will be presented at the IPBIS Conference in Belfast in September, 2018 to a professional who assesses, treats or is involved in research that directly enhances the lives of children and young adults with ABI and their families. This professional will be recognized for outstanding contributions and dedication to serving these individuals.
On behalf of IPBIS, I would like to thank Gluckstein Lawyers of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, who generously support this award.”
