Giffords Traveling to North Carolina for Therapy

Posted By on Sun, Oct 23, 2011 at 1:21 PM

Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords is off to North Carolina for intensive therapy for a couple of weeks. From Giffords spokesman Mark Kimble:

U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords traveled to Asheville, N.C. earlier today for two weeks of intensive therapy sessions.

Giffords will spend time with a therapist who has worked with her in Houston for the last several months and has been extensively involved in the congresswoman’s therapy.

Giffords will work with the therapist from tomorrow through Nov. 4 in Asheville. The trip is strictly rehabilitation-related and has been planned for the last several months. The congresswoman has no scheduled public appearances or events and will give no interviews.

Giffords traveled to Asheville from Houston, where she continues to undergo rehabilitation as part of her recovery from a brain injury suffered when she was shot on Jan. 8 in Tucson. Six people were killed and 13 others, including Giffords, were wounded when a gunman opened fire at Giffords’ Congress On Your Corner event in Northwest Tucson.
