In conjunction with Fort Wayne Neurological Center, Parkview Rehabilitation Center participates in the ThinkFirst National Injury Prevention Foundation’s program. This prevention program educates grade school and high school students about avoiding dangerous situations and unsafe behaviors that could result in brain and spinal cord injuries.
Former Parkview patients who have had brain and spinal cord injuries engage the students with inspiring presentations about the ways in which their lives have changed. These presenters are accompanied by a certified rehabilitation registered nurse, who answers questions from the healthcare provider’s perspective. For more information, call (260) 373-4555.
