This event welcomes anyone interested in clinical and/or research work regarding individuals with brain impairment, including (but not limited to) those studying medicine, clinical psychology, clinical neuropsychology, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, and speech-language therapy.

The Melbourne Ambassador team collaborated with The University of Melbourne's Neuropsychology Students' Society (NSS) and the Australian Psychological Society's College of Clinical Neuropsychology Victorian Section (CCN-Vic) to run a Virtual Student Trivia and Networking Night. Participants spanned a range of disciplines and institutions, and the event provided a great opportunity for peer-to-peer networking and collaboration. We were also very lucky to have a team of experts in brain impairment competing, including Professor Jennie Ponsford, Associate Professor Warrick Brewer, Professor Leanne Togher, Doctor Kate D'Cruz and Doctor Dana Wong. This expert team (the "Trivial Ischaemics") provided an additional level of friendly competition to the night. Overall, the virtual event was successful in engaging students from a range of backgrounds, and participants had a lot of fun mingling with their peers. On a final note, we'd like to again extend our congratulations to the winning team, "Drum, Curtain, Bell, Coffee", for a stellar performance!
ASSBI WA saw their first Student Event of 2020 and first ever online event on the 18th of June. This was an online information and networking event for students interested in working with those with brain impairment. We heard from an advanced Neuropsychology student who presented a recent case from Perth Children’s Hospital and generated plenty of discussion around the multidisciplinary input needed in ABI recovery. We also had small talks from ASSBI WA team members who discussed volunteering and working opportunities relevant to ABI. We finished the evening with break out groups to allow for networking among students. It was a great evening thoroughly enjoyed by those who attended.
