Methodist Rehab invites brain injury survivors to support group


Methodist Rehabilitation Center in Jackson will host a kick-off meeting of the hospital’s new brain injury support group at 4:30 p.m. June 24.

The group will address the concerns of brain injury survivors, their families and caregivers and will be directed by Methodist Rehab staff, including brain injury specialist Dr. Zoraya Parrilla, neuropsychology director Clea Evans, Ph.D. and psychologist Danny Burgess, Ph.D.

“We plan to offer educational information, as well as provide social events to get patients, families and staff together,” Dr. Parrilla said. “But for our first meeting, our goal is to get acquainted with prospective participants and learn how we can answer their needs.”

The group will meet in Methodist Rehab’s second floor BankPlus Conference Center at 1350 East Woodrow Wilson Ave. Refreshments will be served. For more information, contact Dr. Parrilla at 601-364-3304.
