Support Group Corner The topic for the BIAPA online support group in May was the Brightway app that features more than 100 live virtual group classes across the country each month free of charge! Special guest Yannick from Brightway Health demonstrated the app.  Members of the group were enthusiastic about the potential to find fun activities and made a plan to test out specific sections and report back to the group next month.  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. She will share her inspiring story and lessons learned with the group. The BIAPA online support group will meet on Thursday, June 16th at 5:00 PM.
