Social Events

The Brain Injury Alliance of Connecticut (BIAC) recognizes that satisfying social activities and relationships make a positive difference in the lives and recoveries of survivors. We bring survivors, their families and caregivers together and offer opportunities for them to meet new friends through recreational events during the year.

Support groups also host social events of their own. Check the Support Group page for more information.
