Join the #MoreThanMyBrainInjury Campaign this March.
The Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) leads the nation in observing Brain Injury Awareness Month in March each year. The theme for the 2021 to 2023 campaign is More Than My Brain Injury.
An acquired brain injury (ABI) is any injury to the brain that is not hereditary, congenital, degenerative, or induced by birth trauma. Brain Injuries - from things like trauma, stroke, oxygen deprivation, and neurotoxic poisoning - are serious public health issue in the United States, where more than 3.6 million children and adults sustain ABIs each year. This number is likely higher due to the amount of brain injuries that go undiagnosed, unreported, and untreated.
