Introducing our first workshop for 2015, 'Bridging the Gap for Premature Children'.
Dr Francesca of Synaptic Health will provide an overview of Neuroplasticity or ‘the brain’s ability to change’. She will also explain how we can use this to help our premature babies bridge the development gap.
Dr. Francesca graduated from Murdoch University in 2011 as ‘Dux’ of her class. She completed a three year postgraduate program in functional neurology through the Carrick Institute of Functional Neurology (US), and is a Diplomat of the American Chiropractic Neurology Board (DACNB). She is currently completing a Masters degree in Clinical Neuroscience. Francesca is a Fellow and an Executive Board member of the Australasian Academy of Functional Neurology. Further demonstrating her dedication to the field of neuroplasticity, which involves the brain's ability to change, she has also been a contributing author to a text book in the field of functional neurology and won the COCA undergraduate research award in 2011, together with her research team. Francesca has a special interest in treating infants and children using gentle, safe and effective techniques which may help restore the normal function of their body and help them to operate at their optimum potential.
The workshop will be held in Subiaco at the Tom Dadour Centre on Tuesday the 10th of February 2015 at 7pm. It is open to all families affected by high-risk pregnancy, premature birth or having a sick newborn. To register for this workshop please visit the registration page.
