All across the country today, advocates are celebrating Brain Injury Awareness Day. Find out what you need to know, and how you can join in the events.
Traumatic brain injuries affect more than 3.5 million people each year. All together, more than 12 million Americans live with an acquired brain injury (including TBI). And yet, many people across the country don’t know what it takes to recover from that kind of injury.
That’s why the Brain Injury Association of America and the U.S. Congress have declared today, March 16, 2016, as Brain Injury Awareness Day. They are inviting lawmakers in Washington and lay people all across the country to get involved and learn what TBI means to them.
In Washington, the BIAA is paring with the National Association of State Head Injury Administrators and the National Disability Rights Network to bring brain injury awareness day to members of congress. They will host a Brain Injury Awareness Fair, a Congressional Briefing on concussions, and a reception, all designed to introduce legislators to TBI survivors and their families.
This year’s Brain Injury Awareness Day comes as Congress considers several TBI-related pieces of legislation:
The BIAA is encouraging survivors, family members, and advocates all across the country to get involved with Brain Injury Awareness Day. You can get more information and listen to six public service announcements on their webpage. This year’s theme is Not Alone. The agency is encouraging citizens to connect with them on Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #NotAloneinBrainInjury.
