Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA)
The Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) is the voice of brain injury. We are dedicated to increasing access to quality health care and raising awareness and understanding of brain injury through advocacy, education and research. With a nationwide network of more than 40 chartered state affiliates and hundreds of local chapters and support groups, we provide help, hope and healing for individuals who live with brain injury, their families and the professionals who serve them.
“Returning to work or getting a first job can be difficult and stressful for people who have sustained a brain injury,” said Susan H. Connors, BIAA president and CEO. “Living with a brain injury requires a range of resources, strategies and supports. We applaud the efforts of Nadine and her partners at Springboard to ensure people with all abilities lead productive and fulfilling lives in the community.”
About Brain Injuries
An estimated 1.7 million children and adults in the U.S. sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and another 795,000 individuals sustain an acquired brain injury (ABI) from non-traumatic causes each year. Today, more than 3.1 million children and adults in the U.S. live with a lifelong disability as a result of TBI and 6.4 million have a disability due to stroke.
