Annual Cooper Conference 2023: Interpersonal Neuroscience: Communication Across the Lifespan

The University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus is pleased to extend an invitation to the upcoming 2023 Annual Cooper Conference, Interpersonal Neurology: Communication Disorders Across the Lifespan. This seminal event hosted by the Departments of Psychiatry and Neurology will delve into the intricacies of communication disorders, discussing their neurobiological underpinnings and clinical manifestations throughout various stages of life. Providers, students, and others interested in communication disorders across the lifespan are encouraged to attend.

Key Highlights of the Symposium:

Learning Objectives: Understand neurological conditions affecting communication across the lifespan. Recognize and respect cross-cultural sensitivities in treatment. Reflect for deeper understanding and improved practice. Grasp future trends in communication, emphasizing data collection and therapy in real-life settings like home, work, school, and play.

Communication Disorders Through the Lifespan: A comprehensive exploration into the myriad of communication disorders, from those present in childhood to those emerging in later life stages. Understanding onset, progression, and clinical implications will be central to discussions.

Immune System Interactions: Presentations detailing current research into the profound relationships between our immune system, brain structures (particularly white matter), and their collective impact on cognitive and communicative faculties.

Practical Workshops: Engaging sessions that emphasize evidence-based strategies for optimal patient communication. These workshops will integrate the latest findings, promoting a multidisciplinary approach to patient care and facilitating the exchange of best practices among peers.

Expert Panel Discussions: Engage with leaders in the fields of neurology, psychology, speech pathology, and more. These panels will dissect the latest challenges and advancements in communication disorder research and treatment.

Networking Opportunities: Cultivate connections with fellow medical professionals, fostering an environment of collaboration and peer-to-peer learning. A focus on interdisciplinary dialogue will help enrich our collective understanding and approach to patient care.
