Everyone needs friends and support and social activities. Usually, recreation is something you enjoy doing and social usually means doing it with other people. BIANC hosts a number of camps and events designed for people who have experienced a brain injury along with their friends and family. Please visit the support group section to find a local group near you and meet others who have walked in your shoes or visit our Health and Fitness page to learn about how to get more exercise and feel better. On this page, we will list regional events that are scheduled in North Carolina that you may want to attend. Please let us know at email@example.com about an event or recreational activity that we could list.
