New Jersey Brain Injury Seminar Designed for Familes

The Brain Injury Association of New Jersey will offer its free educational session Brain Injury Basics for Families, on Thursday, April 8, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Hunterdon Medical Center, 2100 Wescott Drive, Flemington, New Jersey.

The program, designed for family members of people who have sustained brain injuries, provides a presentation and forum for questions. 

Brain Injury Basics for Families surveys the impact of brain injuries—which are sustained every day as a result of falls, motor vehicle crashes, sports injuries, anoxia, aneurisms, and other types of trauma to the brain. Attendees learn common effects of brain injury, strategies and tips for caregivers, and what resources are available to help them in New Jersey.

The Brain Injury Association of New Jersey is able to provide Brain Injury Basics for Families with funding from the New Jersey Traumatic Brain Injury Fund, which was created, in part, to provide for public education and prevention activities related to brain injury. Brain Injury Basics is offered throughout New Jersey, in a different county each month.  To register for a session, please call 732-745-0200, or register online .

The Brain Injury Association of New Jersey is a statewide organization committed to supporting and advocating for individuals affected by brain injury and raising public awareness through education and prevention. A brain injury can happen to anyone at anytime.
