March is Brain Injury Awareness Month
Brain Injury is a leading cause of death and disability in the United States.
There are more than 5.3 million children and adults in the United States who are living with a permanent brain injury-related disability.
That’s one in every 60 people!
How to Get Involved During Brain Injury Awareness Month:
· Talk with someone with a brain injury and listen to their story;
· Share your brain injury story on your social media accounts using the hashtag #MoreThanMyBrainInjury
· Send a letter to the editor of your local newspaper explaining to your community why they should care about brain injuries; and
· Talk to your employer and businesses you patronize about their practices for recruiting and hiring people with brain injury.
