March is Brain Injury Awareness Month
In the U.S., 13.5 million people are living with a TBI-related disability. Mississippi is in the top 5 states per capita in numbers of brain injuries and #4 for strokes.
Someone sustains a TBI every 9 seconds.
If you know someone who is living with brain injury – or if you have one yourself – you know that brain injury is not an event or an outcome. It’s the start of a misunderstood, misdiagnosed, underfunded neurological disease.
Join Us for Brain Injury Awareness Day at the Capital and Help Us Spread Awareness!
