 SUNDAY, JUNE 26

PRESIDENTIAL LECTURE & WELCOME RECEPTION

21c crystal

Welcome to Lexington! 

21C Hotel Lexington (167 W Main Street)

Sponsored by The National Neurotrauma Society

In 2002, Jason Padgett was attacked, causing a severe concussion and post-traumatic stress disorder. While some individuals suffer life-long negative repercussions from such an event, his brain injury turned Padgett into a mathematical genius, causing him to see the world through the lens of geometry. Padgett states that he sees shapes and angles everywhere “from the geometry of a rainbow -- to the fractals in water spiraling down a drain.” He now writes and draws remarkable geometric images. Jason Padgett will speak about his amazing life story and the changes in his world due to injury.

After Mr. Padgett's presentation, join your colleagues for networking and fun at the first official social event of the conference. Please RSVP by adding this complimentary ticket to your registration.  

FREE-Included for all registered attendees.  Guest Ticket: $60

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 29 - THEATER OF WAR

PRESENTATION & PANEL DISCUSSION

TOW header

Lexington Convention Center - Bluegrass Ballroom

Theater of War presents readings of Sophocles’ Ajax and Philoctetes to military and civilian communities across the United States and Europe. These ancient plays timelessly and universally depict the psychological and physical wounds inflicted upon warriors by war. By presenting these plays to military and civilian audiences, our hope is to de-stigmatize psychological injury, increase awareness of post-deployment psychological health issues, disseminate information regarding available resources, and foster greater family, community, and troop resilience. Using Sophocles’ plays to forge a common vocabulary for openly discussing the impact of war on individuals, families, and communities, these events will be aimed at generating compassion and understanding between diverse audiences.  Each reading is followed by a panel discussion featuring a diverse group of military, civilian and neurotrauma community colleagues as well as a town hall-style audience discussion.
