Advancing Research for Neurological Diseases Act – Capital Hill Briefing

On September 16th from 11:30 to 12:30 in the Senate Russell Building, room 485, the Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) will be co-sponsoring a Senate briefing to discuss S. 849, Advancing Research for Neurological Diseases Act.

The bill would help advance neurological disease research by establishing a system to collect accurate epidemiological data  about individuals afflicted with neurological diseases.  Currently, there is no accurate account of how many people in the United States have sustained a brain injury or of the demographic characteristics of those living with disabilities as a result of a brain injury. As a result, brain injury researchers are working at a distinct disadvantage: lacking basic information about the disease.
