Brain Injury Center Seeks ‘Champions’ to Share Personal Stories

By Robyn Mincher, Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center:The Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center (DVBIC) is recruiting survivors of traumatic brain injuries (TBI) to share their stories of courage and resilience for its A Head for the Future TBI awareness and prevention initiative. These “TBI champions” will show the importance of recognizing brain injuries, and that recovery is possible.  A champion can be a service member, veteran or family member who has experienced brain injury in a noncombat situation. Champions will help spotlight TBI prevention and detection and encourage others who may have sustained a brain injury to get it checked out. A Head for the Future will feature champions using video testimonials and promote stories through blog posts and social media, including the DVBIC page on Facebook.
