Brain Injury Awareness Month

In recognition of Brain Injury Awareness Month in March, the Texas Health and Human Services (HHS) Texas Brain Injury Programs will offer a free virtual conference March 30-31. The conference theme is “Resiliency and Recovery: Bouncing Forward.”

More than 5.3 million Americans are living with disabilities related to brain injuries, which can occur in a matter of seconds but can have lasting effects on a person’s life as well as their family members’ lives.

The 2022 Texas Brain Injury Awareness Month Conference aims to celebrate the achievements of people living with brain injuries and provide education on overcoming adversity, developing a resilient mindset and improving outcomes.

The conference will focus on the impact and importance of resilience and bouncing forward with recovery after an injury. Attendees will hear from survivors and leading brain injury professionals about innovative treatments and best practices related to resilience and recovery after a brain injury.

All activities are free and open to the public, and continuing education credits for multiple disciplines will be offered for attending this event.
