I’m honored to announce that I was elected to the Board of Directors of the Brain Injury Association of Michigan [BIAMI]. This state organization is the Michigan branch of the Brain Injury Association of America.
Founded in 1980, the Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) is the leading national organization serving and representing individuals, families and professionals who are touched by a life-altering, often devastating, traumatic brain injury (TBI). Together with its network of more than 40 chartered state affiliates, as well as hundreds of local chapters and support groups across the country, the BIAA provides information, education and support to assist the 3.17 million Americans currently living with traumatic brain injury and their families.
This position on the state board will not only allow Smith and Johnson to better represent and serve families who have been confronted with TBI, but also supply you, the readers of InjuryBoard Traverse City timely and important information regarding medical advances in the diagnosing and treatment of closed head injuries, legislative initiatives that seek to protect the rights of those that have been affected by a traumatic brain injury and information relating to the safety of you the consumer and the prevention/avoidance of closed head injuries.
We here at Smith and Johnson look forward to providing you, our readers, with weekly updates from both the state and national Brain Injury Association. Stayed tuned.
