    Navigating Texas Health Plans RE: Brain Injury

Through our direct affiliation with the Brain Injury Association of America, we are able to build our voice throughout the Lone Star State with constant support from the nation's oldest and largest nationwide brain injury advocacy organization.

Mission

Our mission is to advance brain injury prevention, research, treatment, and education and to improve the quality of life for all individuals impacted by brain injury. Through advocacy, we bring help, hope, and healing to millions of individuals living with brain injury, their families, and the professionals who serve them.

Strategic Planning Process

Texas continues to experience record growth statewide; unfortunately, such growth also equates to more injuries. The BIAA - Texas Division believes the best opportunity to operate successfully lies with proper organization and planning. Over the next six months, staff and committee volunteers will address the current and future state of the division by facilitating a comprehensive strategic planning process.  By answering fundamental questions like "Where are we today?", "Where are we going tomorrow?", and "How do we get there?" we will map out the Texas Division Strategic Plan complete with a one-, three-, and five-year operational plan that will provide the path forward to success.  Whether you are a survivor, a caregiver in search of information, or a clinician who has been in the field for years, you understand the need of a strong, dynamic voice for brain injury in Texas.

How Can I Get Involved?

With so many of our fellow Texans impacted by brain injury every day, there is no better time than now to find out how you can make a difference. Please email us for information on getting involved with a steering committee in your area as we work to increase awareness of brain injury, provide information, resources, and support for individuals who have sustained brain injuries and their families, and advocate for improved funding and services across Texas.
