The Voice of Awareness and Advocacy The Voice of Help, Hope and Healing The Voice of Progress The Voice of Quality Health Care

Welcome to the Brain Injury Association of America

Brain injury is not an event or an outcome. It is the start of a misdiagnosed, misunderstood, under-funded neurological disease. Individuals who sustain brain injuries must have timely access to expert trauma care, specialized rehabilitation, lifelong disease management and individualized services and supports in order to live healthy, independent and satisfying lives.

The mission of the Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) is to advance brain injury prevention, research, treatment and education and to improve the quality of life for all people affected by brain injury. We are dedicated to increasing access to quality health care and raising awareness and understanding of brain injury. With a network of state affiliates, local chapters and support groups, we are the voice of brain injury.

 



Bowling for Brain Injury is the signature fundraising and awareness event for the Brain Injury Association of America and its affiliates. Events are scheduled in Indiana, Virginia, California, New York, Nebraska, and Missouri. Money raised through Bowling for Brain Injury is used to assist those living with brain injury, their families and caregivers.
