Advancing Warfighter Brain Health
"The enduring responsibility of the Department of Defense to promote and protect the health and well-being of our nation's warfighters and their families."
March is Brain Injury Awareness Month. The Department of Defense (DoD) is on the forefront of our understanding of traumatic brain injury and the Blast Injury Research Coordinating Office (BIRCO) plays a key role through research, education, and policy. We are pleased to share the activities of Brain Injury Awareness Month to continue to fulfill the Executive Agent responsibilities to make brain trauma-related research issues the premiere focus, facilitate collaboration, and promote information sharing. In keeping with these responsibilities, the Brain Health Research Program will highlight special events occurring throughout the month of March as well as draw attention to TBI-related research efforts that the government and non-profit organizations that are working on to increase awareness, provide educational material, and advance research and treatment opportunities for patients suffering the consequences of TBI. Please take the time to check out the information and learn ways to get involved. #BIAMonth #BIAM19 #TBI #BrainInjury #Concussion #BrainInjuryAwareness
