MARCH IS BRAIN INJURY AWARENESS MONTH

Due to current concerns related to the COVID-19, or coronavirus, many community events are being cancelled, postponed, or transitioned to online format. For the most up-to-date information, please contact BIANC for specific Brain Injury Awareness event information. For more information on the virus, activities in NC, and prevention, visit NCDHHSCDC, or our blog post.

Each year in March, advocates from around the nation strive to bring awareness to the public about brain injury, it's effects, need for services, and a call for compassion and understanding to individuals living with brain injury and their families. The Brain Injury Association of North Carolina wants you to feel empowered and a part of your community whether you are living with a brain injury or not. We are all important parts to creating the change from a system of help to one of hope.

 

Let us know if you're interested in being involved this year! Here are some ways you can get involved:

Join, attend, or speak at a local support group to be in the community!
