Community Programming

BIA-MA community awareness and prevention programs are developed to address the leading causes, contributing factors and consequences of brain injury. These programs are available across the state and can be customized to suit the needs of any audience.

Brains At Risk is an awareness and prevention program that links dangerous driving behaviors to the devastating effects of traumatic brain injury (TBI).  Program curriculum combines video, graphics and group discussions to demonstrate the importance of choices made behind the wheel. In addition, a brain injury survivor shares their lived experience as a result of risky driving behaviors. This program is available to anyone interested in understanding the correlation between risky driving behaviors and the devastating effects of traumatic brain injury.
