Kaua`i’s only brain and spinal cord injury advocacy and support group announced this week that March is designated as Brain Injury Awareness Month by the National Brain Injury Association Organization.
Mayor Bernard Carvalho presented the proclamation to the group’s volunteer director Dr. Louanne Lisk, Clinical Neuropsychologist, saying, ‘Kaua`i will support the education and enlightenment of all in understanding how our island community is affected.’
Many people who suffer brain injuries may never lose consciousness and still experience significant changes in their ability to concentrate, remember and learn new tasks; as well as changes in behavior and mood.
Think B.I.G. is a resource for providing knowledgeable professionals and lay persons who are survivors of these life changing experiences. The group partners with families to assist individuals in the complex process that is brain and/or spinal cord injury recovery.
