Please join us for an important briefing “Not Just TBI and Concussion: Acquired Brain Injury’s Impact on the Military and Civilian Populations” on
Wednesday, June 19 from 9:30 a.m.-11:00 a.m. in room 2020 Rayburn House Office Building.
Over recent years we have made remarkable progress in increasing awareness and research, as well as improving prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of traumatic brain injury (TBI). However, there is a major segment of the brain injury survivor population
that receives little attention: those individuals who have sustained an acquired brain injury. This briefing will examine acquired brain injury in the military, civilian population, and a result of the opioid crisis and intimate partner violence. Our, briefing,
“Not Just TBI and Concussion: Acquired Brain Injury’s Impact on the Military and Civilian Populations” will explore these issues further.
The briefing will feature:
- Shirley Richardson – Caregiver of adult son with ABI;
- Matt Breiding, PhD – Team Lead, Division of Unintentional Injury and Prevention, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention;
- Michael J. Decker, PhD, RN, RRT, D.ABSM – Associate Professor, Case Western Reserve University; and
- Steve Wade – Executive Director, Brain Injury Association of New Hampshire
The briefing will be moderated by Susan Connors, the President and CEO of the Brain Injury Association of America.
