On October 13, 2015, Dr. Thomas G. Broussard, Jr., a neuroeducator, author, and public speaker will present on the topic of stroke and aphasia in the Community Room at Antioch University New England (AUNE) at 6 pm. Dr. Broussard is dedicated to educating the national community about stroke and aphasia, the loss of language that often results from a stroke. Having suffered a stroke in 2011, Broussard spent many months working to recover his abilities to read, write, and speak. His journey led him to create Stroke Diary: A Primer for Aphasia Therapy which provides tools for aphasia therapy and rehabilitation.
Dr. Broussard was formerly associate dean, Admissions & Career Services at The Heller School for Social Policy and Management at Brandeis University and is the founder/owner of Stroke Educator, Inc.
The AUNE Speaker Series events are free and open to the public, offering an opportunity for thoughtful exchange on topics of special interest or current events.
