With most of the United States under stay-at-home orders due to the Coronavirus, the role of caregivers who are living with a loved one suffering from suspected Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) has never been more important. If possible symptoms of CTE were already having an effect on family life, those difficulties may be magnified with everyone under one roof at all times.
Join the Concussion Legacy Foundation (CLF) for a conversation hosted by CEO Chris Nowinski, Ph.D. about strategies and support systems for suspected Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) caregivers. Hear insights from Dr. Robert Stern, Director of Clinical Research at the Boston University CTE Center, on caring for your loved one during the pandemic. Plus, we’ll welcome caregivers Kim Adamle, whose husband Mike Adamle is suffering from probable CTE; Liz Nicholson Sullivan, whose husband Gerry is suffering from probable CTE; and Dr. Shannon Albarelli, whose husband Mike passed away in 2018 and was diagnosed with CTE.
At the end of the webinar, Dr. Albarelli will lead a special meditation session to help viewers cope with any stress and anxiety they are feeling.
