    Brain Injury Awareness After All These Years

    in Education

    So why after all these years of brain injury awareness campaigns that started in 1983, that there is still little known about brain injury?  Aren’t people listening or don’t they care?  Tonight, we will talk about how long brain injury awareness has been happening and what else we can do to make brain injury awareness a reality.  Why isn't there more discussions about creating cost effective brain injury services and discussing the recovery process after brain injury?   Who benefits from all our hard work to make people aware of brain injuries?    Why is brain injury the most lucrative field in rehabilitation medicine and yet little known about what a brain injury is and how best to treat it?  Why is that advocacy groups only talk about problems after a brain injuries instead of solutions many of us face after a brain injury?   Who benefits from all our hard work to make people, doctors and lawyers aware of these solutions?  Good questions.  Listen to tonight’s show - call in and share your ideas and recommendations.  Thank You!

    The most complex object in the known universe, the brain, only uses 20 watts of power.

    Brain Injury Awareness or What?

    in Education

    Tonight, Ken Collins will talk about brain injury awareness and who is getting helped by all this awareness.  Ken will talk about the many brain injury awareness efforts he has been involved with since 1985.  After all these years of brain injury awareness and advocacy why it is the public, legislators and health are care professionals not aware of brain injury?    How says we need more brain injury awareness?  When does brain injury awareness become just another way to market obscenely expensive services and the thieves who are stealing the lives of people with brain injuries for their own personal gain and prosperity?  When those of us who are concerned about this problem speak up we are labeled as trouble makers or worse.  Are all the brain injury survivor sites on Facebook helping people with brain injuries or the industry that is making billions of dollars exploiting people with brain injuries?  What role can people with brain injuries play in creating community-based services for people with brain injuries?   When does sitting around waiting for something to change without doing anything help the process?
