BIAA Partners with Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for Brain Injury Awareness Month Initiative:
The CDC is planning to launch the “Help Seniors Live Better, Longer: Prevent Brain Injury” initiative in March 2008 during Brain Injury Awareness Month. The CDC has also developed a new set of English and Spanish language materials for older adults and their caregivers. Each publication uses a concise question and answer format to provide older adults, and their family members and other caregivers with information they can use to take an active role in preventing, recognizing, and responding to TBI in older adults. These materials, along with a poster directing people to the CDC’s website for additional information will be available in early 2008.
