Two recognized leaders in the advancement of brain health through overall awareness of brain injuries have partnered in the Invisible Disabilities® Association’s Brain IDEAS Symposium.

CereScan Corp. is the Presenting Sponsor of the Invisible Disabilities® Association’s Brain IDEAS Symposium and its 2015 Awards Gala, to be held in Denver, CO on October 23, 2016. This year’s symposium theme is "It's All in Your Head!" and will focus on brain disorders, brain health, and brain therapy. In support of the organization’s nationwide efforts to increase awareness of the challenges facing those suffering from chronic brain disorders, CereScan has committed its resources to the event. The symposium caps off Invisible Disabilities Week in Colorado, as designated by a proclamation by Colorada Governor John Hickenlooper. CereScan’s headquarters are located in metropolitan Denver, with affiliated clinics in Arlington and Houston, Texas as well as Metairie, Louisiana, Topeka, Kansas and Naples, Florida.

“The Brain IDEAS Symposium is closely aligned with our mission to provide the most advanced, comprehensive and accurate brain diagnostic information for the purpose of significantly improving patient outcomes and advancing brain science,” said John Kelley, Chairman and CEO of CereScan Corp. “We are pleased to once again work with IDA, and are proud to be a part of this volunteer-driven event for a noble cause.”

The Brain IDEAS Symposium is designed for medical professionals and anyone interested in the care of those with brain disorders or brain injuries. The Symposium is being held Friday, October 23, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. at the Marriott Denver Tech Center. Tickets for the day-long educational event are available online at http://bit.ly/1QBgAid. Special pricing is available for students and military veterans.Expert speakerswill deliver dynamic, science, and story-filled talks on relevant topics including mental illness, Autism, Alzheimer's, nutrition, mental training, humor, stroke, PTSD, and TBI. Expert-led panels for questions and answers will conclude each section allowing attendees to interact with presenters.

“The theme of this year’s Brain IDEAS Symposium is ‘It’s All in Your Head’”, said Wayne Connell, Founder and CEO of IDA. “What a familiar refrain for those living with chronic illness, pain or disability. The invisible nature of many illnesses and disabilities often creates an atmosphere of suspicion or disbelief. What if there are things truly ‘in your head.’ We’ll explore many of them during the symposium and help those living with them become Invisible No More®.”
