Lauren Ziaks, Board Member
Lauren Ziaks is a physical therapist at Park City Hospital with Intermountain Healthcare who works with patients with mild traumatic brain injury (concussion), vestibular disorders (dizziness/balance), and autonomic dysfunction to assist them with getting back into normal life.
Lauren has her own personal experience with mental health challenges and sees these difficulties daily in her patients, particularly those dealing with chronic illness or loss of identity surrounding illness. She aims to end the stigma associated with mental health and attempts to educate those around her on the need to treat both the mind and the body to achieve optimal recovery. Her goal is to assist CONNECT in this common mission.
Lauren is a published author in the field of concussion rehabilitation, co-hosts a podcast on traumatic brain injury, and speaks at local and national conferences to spread the word of healing after a head injury. She was able to accomplish these wins despite her traumatic brain injury and mental health history.
Lauren is excited to be a part of the Board of CONNECT and have more opportunities to meet people in our community and more access to spread the mission of ending the stigma of mental health so people will have access to the care and acceptance they need to live successful and healthy lives.
