    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!

    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?

    Down and dark days of brain injury survival with Host Michael Idell

    in Education

    Many of us have hard days in life just as anyone else does but with a brain injury, coping strategies are hugely different. 


    Positive reinforcement may need to come from family, friends, and caregivers but how can we do it within ourselves?


    Emotional impacts on the brain injured have a different level than the general public but it isn't impossible to achieve rewards through positive coping strategies. Let's discuss what we do to help, ideas what may be better, and alternative measures than medication.

    Another Fork in the Road: Juliet Madsen, Brain Injury Survivor, USA Troop

    in Education

    Juliet Madsen has served in the US Army since she was 17-years old. She was involved in Operations Desert Storm and Desert Shield. While serving her country, Juliet suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury and at least one stroke, which changed her life forever.


    Every TBI survivor and caregiver has encountered a fork in the road that has diverted his or her life-plan. A car accident, a fall from the roof, doing one more chin-up, an IED blast, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slips from reality as dreams turn to struggle. These unexpected life-happenings that divert one from his or her chosen path in life can be devastating.


    But as Yogi Berra once said, “If you come to a fork in the road, take it.” Life is all about choices!
