Someone sustains a brain injury every 9 seconds.

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is defined as an alteration in brain function, or other evidence of brain pathology, caused by an external force.

Brain injury is not an event or an outcome. It is the start of an often misdiagnosed, misunderstood, underfunded neurological disease.

Join our efforts today.
