Life After Stroke Open Day 20th May

Open Invitation to a screening of the award-winning film "The Closer We Get" on Friday, 20th of May 2016 at Glasgow Caledonian University.

This inspiring film is set in the Scottish town of Largs and shares an intimate and fearless portrait of life after stroke. Scottish-born filmmaker and director Karen Guthrie shares insight to the impact of stroke on her mother and the wider family as they continue with life after stroke.

We are delighted that Karen will be joining us to discuss the film. Karen, together with a panel of expert researchers and healthcare professionals will participate in a panel discussion with members of the audience about issues arising during life after stroke.

You will also have an opportunity to meet stroke rehabilitation experts, hear about recently completed rehabilitation research and to get involved in future research activities. A full programme for the afternoon can be downloaded by clicking on the image below.
