We are committed to raising awareness for brain injury and are thrilled to be participating, once again, at The 2017 International Paediatric Brain Injury Society (IPBIS) which will be held in Rome, Italy.

SAVE THE DATE:  September 20 - 23, 2017

At the September 2017 conference, Gluckstein Lawyers will be presenting the Jane Gillett Award. This award celebrates Dr. Jane Gillett's legacy, her contributions to the field of paediatric acquired brain injury in Canada and recognizes other trailblazers who are also making a difference.

Dr. Gillett was at the forefront of brain injury treatment, acting as a paediatric and adult neurologist. As founder and president of the International Paediatric Brain Injury Society, she greatly impacted both the local and international community with her dedication to acquired brain injury research.

We were privileged to work alongside Dr. Gillett and call her a friend.
