Did You Know?

 

Friday, September 18th, 2020 is National Concussion Awareness Day in the US. 

Let us work together to help raise awareness around concussion (mTBI) and ways we can help prevent injuries in our communities! The Brain Injury Alliance of Arizona is doing JUST THAT by asking the community "what do you wish people knew about concussion?" They are inviting people to make a 1-2 minute video at home OR you can go and record a session with them! Contact them for more information at This email address is being protected from spambots.
