About the Brain Injury Association of Ohio
BIAOH is a statewide advocacy and education organization incorporated in 1982 to improve services and supports to Ohioans with brain injury and their families, to promote prevention and to advocate for advances in research, legislation and program development. In 1985, the IRS granted 501©(3) status to BIAOH, affirming our tax exempt, not-for profit status.
BIAOH is comprised of survivors, family members, friends and professionals working together to promote better understanding, rehabilitation opportunities and lifelong community supports to assist an individual in living as fully and independently as possible and to work for prevention of brain injuries throughout the population.
