The Cintas Center is hosting a showing of a Web cast with Bob and Lee Woodruff on raising awareness of traumatic brain injury on April 1 at 7:00 p.m. in the Schiff Family Conference Center. This presentation is made possible by the Drake Foundation.

Bob Woodruff, a former ABC News reporter, was wounded with a life-threatening brain injury from a roadside bomb in an Iraqi war zone in January 2006. His wife, Lee, narrated the family’s recovery in the memoir, In An Instant: A Family’s Journey of Love and Healing, and the Woodruffs continue to inform the public of the seriousness of traumatic brain injury.

This Web cast is representative of numerous areas of social discipline such as social work, psychology, political and military sciences, nursing and medicine, international affairs, occupational therapy and organizational communication. All attendees are invited to participate in a panel discussion following the Web cast facilitated by Mark Meyers, dean of the College of Social Sciences, Health, and Education.
