The app can be downloaded free of charge from google play or the apps store and used on smart phones and tablets. In addition to reviewing the experiences of members using the Brightway Events app, the June meeting will feature special guest Jennifer Lynn Robinson, a person with brain injury who delivered the TEDx talk “From Fighting for Breath to Fighting for Life” in March 2020.
