Brain Injury Awareness Day in Washington, D.C.
Each March, people from across the nation travel to Washington, D.C. to join their fellow brain injury advocates, friends, and colleagues on Capitol Hill for Brain Injury Awareness Day.
The Brain Injury Association of America participates in the annual event by assisting with planning, exhibiting, and sponsoring the reception alongside other stakeholders, the National Association of State Head Injury Administrators, and the National Disability Rights Network. Brain Injury Awareness Day is an excellent opportunity to network with other advocates, meet with representatives from various federal agencies, and to visit with your Members of Congress regarding key issues surrounding brain injury.
The Congressional Brain Injury Task Force (CBITF), co-chaired by Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-N.J.) and Rep. Tom Rooney (R-Fla.), has designated March 22, 2017 as Brain Injury Awareness Day.
