HII at Brain Injury Awareness Day
Members of the ACR’s Head Injury Institute (HII) attended the annual Brain Injury Awareness Day in Washington, D.C., on March 18. The Congressional Brain Injury Task Force, co-chaired by Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr. and Rep. Tom Rooney, sponsored the event, which brings various health care stakeholders, including patients and physicians, to the nation’s capital to meet with legislators to discuss the impact of brain injury.
HII staff discussed the institute’s projects, goals, and other endeavors with members of Congress, booth visitors, and fellow exhibitors. Through this outreach, the HII and other advocates are working to help legislators understand the need for federally funded programs and research.
