Paul Ellerby our Brain Injury Field Officer had a fantastic time yesterday with the students at Te Kura o Te Paroa, at their Health, Safety and Education Expo.

This was a great opportunity to show our young sportspeople how the brain works, what it looks like and why it is important to know about and recognize concussion at an early age. All kids need healthy and protected brains to grow to their potential!

Getting out into the community and sharing our knowledge around brain injury, disability support, equipment and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is an important part of what we do at Disabilities Resource Centre Trust. If your school or community group in the Eastern Bay of Plenty would like someone to come and give a presentation about any of those topics, contact us on 07 307 1447 or information@drct.co.nz
