Brain Injury Awareness Events

Each year, March is recognized nationally as Brain Injury Awareness Month. This year alone, 3.5 million Americans will sustain an acquired brain injury. Individuals who have sustained a brain injury are often times misdiagnosed, misunderstood, and under-funded. 

By taking part in our Brain Injury Awareness Month campaign, you can unite with the millions of citizens living with brain injury and their families who are taking action to ensure their voices are heard.

BIAC thanks Presenting Sponsor Vantis Life  and Supporting Sponsor Sheffy, Mazzaccaro, DePaolo & Denigris, LLP for their generosity in supporting Brain Injury Awareness Month 2019.
