March is Brain Injury Awareness Month.
Karin Reuter-Rice, associate professor, was invited as the chair of the NC Governor’s Brain Injury Advisory Council Children and Youth Committee, along with representatives of NC Department of Health and Human Services and the Brain Injury Association of North Carolina, to speak with U.S. Sens. Richard Burr and Thom Tillis, for North Carolina, and Reps. G.K. Butterfield and Deborah Ross. This year’s Congressional Brain Injury Awareness Hill Day was held virtually on March 3. The annual event provides an opportunity for the Brain Injury Community to advocate for state and national funding to improve services such as post-brain injury programs for patients and their family to improve health and quality of life.
Be sure to join the Brain Injury Association of America's #MoreThanMyBrainInjury Campaign and help educate others about what it’s like to live with a brain injury.
