Education & Prevention

Raising Awareness. Reducing Brain Injury.

Approximately 1.5 million people in Canada are living with a brain injury. The incidence of brain injury outnumbers breast cancer, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis and HIV/AIDS - combined. Yet up to 90% of brain injuries are preventable.
 
Through education we're bringing brain injury to the forefront and reducing preventable brain injury.
