Brain Injury Awareness Program

Thursday, March 15, 2018

March is Brain Injury Awareness Month and the Prescott Valley Public Library is hosting Kim Wright who will be speaking about this important and interesting subject. Over the past few decades, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) has been highly discussed in the medical community and the general public. This is in part due to recent combat operations and subsequent recognition of this potentially “silent injury.” Additionally, TBI has gained considerable attention in the sports industry. TBI produces a complex constellation of medical consequences including physical, emotional, behavior and cognitive deficits. In combat Veterans, these symptoms often parallel the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. It has become increasingly important to educate Veterans and their families about these symptoms and how to address them effectively.
