Launch of Brain Injury Awareness Week (21st-27th August 2017)

Wednesday, August 16, 2017

You are invited to attend the Brain Injury Association of Tasmania launch of National Brain Injury Awareness Week in Tasmania 2017. The event will be held at 2:00pm on Sunday 20th August at the Tasmanian Hockey Centre, Bell Street, New Town. Please RSVP to Rosie@biat.org.au

National Brain Injury Awareness Week in Tasmania will be launched by Professor Mark Slatyer, Colonel RANR, who will present on this year’s National Brain Injury Awareness Week theme – Brain Injury in the Military.

There will also be a screening of ‘Ella’s Story’ - the first in a series of short videos by BIAT featuring Tasmanians who have been impacted by brain injury.

Sixteen year old Ella and her mum Traci-Jean talk about their lives after Ella sustained a brain injury playing hockey 14 months ago.

The video highlights issues surrounding the aftermath of, and recovery from, a concussion, and the fact that brain injury can happen to ‘Anyone, Anywhere, at Anytime’.
