O’Mara and Palin’s presentation, “Teaching Innovation, Entrepreneurship Skills and Knowledge to Individuals with Neurological Disorders: A Pathway to Fulfillment, Self-Determination, and Self-Esteem,” explores questions regarding the intersection of entrepreneurial skills, targeted alliances, and those with neurological disorders with an application of a social entrepreneurship based solution.
