Children are at high risk for brain injuries. The fall off changing tables, they are dropped by parents and other loved ones they are unsteady on their feet and therefore tend to fall down and hurt their fragile developing brains. Because children are growing rapidly they make what is thought to be a fast recovery. However, while tissue and bones might heal quickly the altered brain may take a different track. The greatest difficulties become apparent when they reach adolescence and their hormones kick in and the worse, out of control behaviors begins. Our guest tonight suffered such an injury when he was 11 years old. Back then brain injury was very poorly understood and he and his family were cut adrift to learn as you go the mysteries of brain injury. Well, this kid and his family were put through the mill and he has just recently learned what went wrong and why. Join us tonight for a discussion of their experiences of brain injury and what the family and what the future has in store.
We will discuss the prevention, treatment, and recovery of sports injuries. Most importantly concussions in youth and amateur sports. A revolutionary new product that can detect concussions as they happen and attaches to the back of helmets will be discussed.

Transitioning into the community after a brain injury has enough personal bouts of their own with physical and/or neurological impairments. Getting assistance is very dificult where we can go, who to talk to, and finding people who understand. Family and friends many times don't have the patience. Government offices don't have much to offer to people with cognitive disabilities. State brain injury centers have a limited amount of resources to offer or don't communicate well with many individuals.
Lisa Dryer and Michael Idell have both lived in different parts of the country since having their brain injuries. They have found a number of people in their support groups nationally who have had all of these problems and more. They advocate for change and would like to get the word out to medical professionals by survivors, caregivers and the public who are knowledgable with the disabled community.
Please join us and speak together in a positive, uplifting atmosphere to share and tell our stories. We are alive and have accomplished so much. Let's start educating the public that we do exist and to keep an open mind this could be anyone we know at any given moment.

The main reason we are tackling this topic this evening is that even a seemingly minor concussion can have life-long, life altering consequences. And that is the topic of tonight's discussion.
