Brain Injury Awareness Day is March 13, 2019

The Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) is pleased to announce that the Congressional Brain Injury Task Force, chaired by Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-N.J.), has scheduled Brain Injury Awareness Day on Capitol Hill Wednesday, March 13, 2019. As in years past, there will be an awareness fair, congressional briefing, and reception.

If you are unable to attend Brain Injury Awareness Day in person, don't worry — you can take action at home! Set up meetings in your elected officials' district offices to share the needs of individuals with brain injury in your state. Call your elected officials in Washington, D.C., and invite them to attend the events on March 13 or invite them to events you are hosting in your state. Get active on social media: like your elected officials on Facebook, follow them on Twitter, and share our resources with them.

Please continue to check BIAA’s home page for additional information. You can also sign up for BIAA’s weekly e-newsletter, Policy Corner, for updates regarding Brain Injury Awareness Day on Capitol Hill.

 


Since my son had a brain injury, I've worried about him every day. Will he get the support and help he needs to succeed in school? Will he go to college and have a rewarding career? Will he be able to live a long and happy life?

The Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) has helped people like me and my son for decades, and I want the organization to be here for other families for decades to come. Your donation will help ensure that BIAA has the resources necessary to continue as the voice of brain injury, fighting on behalf of every member of the brain injury community.
