Brain Injury Awareness Month

In observance of Brain Injury Awareness Month, the Administration for Community Living (ACL) will be hosting a virtual Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Partners Day on February 28, 2023, from 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm. Registration for the free event is now open.

Each year, under what was previously called TBI Stakeholder Day, ACL convenes interested parties to discuss important issues around TBI services, supports, and systems and to learn from other partners, brain injury survivors, family members, support networks, and state and federal representatives.

This year, there will be sessions on aging, employment, the intersectionality of TBI and other medical and social issues, and peer support.

ACL is still working on finalizing the agenda for the 2023 ACL TBI Partners Day; however, they plan to include state and federal representatives as well as brain injury survivors and family members in the sessions. Session participants will be given the opportunity to ask questions during each session.

The webinar will include ASL interpretation, live English captions, and live Spanish interpretation. If you require additional accommodations to participate or if you have any questions about the event, please contact them via email.

In coordination with Brain Injury Awareness month, a Brain Injury Awareness Day has been planned for Tuesday, March 29, 2022. This full-day event (from 10:00 am–3:00 pm) will be held at the State Capitol in Harrisburg, PA. The event will include a briefing with legislative speakers, legislative meetings, a reception, and a brain injury panel discussion. The schedule and additional details can be found on the event flyer.

If you plan on attending the event, please contact Melissa Carmen via email or at (717) 361-2854.
