As part of our Brain Injury Awareness 2020 campaign, we are hosting awareness and prevention programs to help educate the community about brain injury, recovery and the need for prevention.

Did you know?

– Over 1.5 million Americans sustain a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) each year.

– More than 5 million Americans live with long-term disabilities as a result of brain injury and millions more suffer from the residual effects of less severe TBIs.

– A TBI can have lasting effects. These effects could include impaired memory, coordination, vision, hearing and emotional functioning.

Your support will help OP continue to offer life-changing programs and services that build cognitive skills, vocational skills, and self-esteem for individuals with brain injury.
