In Connecticut alone there are approximately 22,000 deaths, emergency department visits and hospitalizations that result from traumatic brain injury (TBI) each year. Because prevention is the only cure for a brain injury, BIAC is committed to educating individuals in our communities about brain injury and how it can be prevented.
Last year BIAC staff and volunteers educated more than 6,000 Connecticut residents—including students, parents, school personnel, veterans and seniors—about brain injury awareness and prevention.
