Ryan Tapp: Life after a Traumatic Brain Injury
Gaylord's ThinkFirst Program is part of the National ThinkFirst Association, which is committed to educating youth about the devastating and life-altering consequences of poor decisions that can lead to a serious brain or spinal cord injury.
In this first episode, Megan Palmer, OT and Gaylord's ThinkFirst Program coordinator, interviews Ryan Tapp, a former patient, who was in a serious car accident that wounded three other drivers and left him with a serious traumatic brain injury. Ryan shares his story including spending time in prison, where his life is now, and how these events have dramatically changed him as a person.
