Mind Matters 2019

 

Mind Matters 2019

Over 85 friends and supporters of the Stroke Comeback Center came together on October 25, 2019 at the Tysons Corner Hyatt Regency to enjoy an afternoon with local author and activist, Abby Maslin. She shared an unforgettable story not only of love and commitment in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds but also of finding and creating personal identity and authenticity within the realm of caregiving and disability. Special thanks to our event sponsors for making this event possible: MedStar NRH, Adventist HealthCare Rehabilitation, Tell Me Town Foundation, CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield and Genentech.
