Dearborn, MI (PRWEB) June 24, 2013
John D. Russell, executive director of the non-profit Center for Neurological Studies (CNS), has announced that Robyn Wheeler, LPN, has joined CNS as Director of Community Relations.
“To have someone with Robyn’s background on board, this means a great deal not only to CNS, but to literally thousands of people, struggling with neurological problems,” said Russell.
Wheeler most recently served as Education Specialist for the Minnesota Brain Injury Alliance, the state-wide chapter of the national Brain Injury Association of America. In her role at CNS, Wheeler will coordinate CNS support groups, education programs, and the integration of CNS services with agencies that serve individuals with traumatic brain injury or other neurological diagnoses. Wheeler is a licensed practical nurse and a certified brain injury specialist.
“This is a great honor,” said Wheeler. “CNS is recognized nationally, even internationally, for its cutting-edge work in our understanding of brain injury. This opportunity will take CNS services to the next level, which can only benefit both patients and their loved ones.”
Under the direction of its medical director and vice president, Randall R. Benson, MD, CNS uses advanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques to objectify mild-to-moderate traumatic brain injury. These MRI techniques were largely unavailable to patients only a few years ago. The Center hosts patients from around the world who have experienced concussion or brain trauma following injury in sports, motor vehicle accidents, and other events.
CNS was founded in 2011 with the objective of advancing scientific research for neurovascular disease. For more information on CNS, reach Brent Chartier at 586-996-3221.
