March is Brain Injury Awareness Month

To bring attention to people who have suffered a traumatic brain injury, the Brain Injury Association of America has designated March as Brain Injury Awareness Month. This awareness program aims to shed light on the challenges that patients, family members, and other caregivers face when someone experiences a traumatic brain injury, often referred to as TBI. The program also highlights current efforts of the medical community in terms of research and rehabilitation endeavors that work to improve patient outcomes.
