Putting the Pieces Together

March - May

Patients, staff, and community partners decorated puzzle pieces, which were on display in the hospital. Pieces were decorated to illustrate connection to brain injury. Together, they demonstrate how it takes a team to put the pieces together after brain injury. See photos of the display below.
