BIAT celebrated 20 years of supporting Tasmanians impacted by brain injury in 2018.
2018 represented a significant milestone for the Brain Injury Association of Tasmania as we celebrated 20 years of supporting Tasmanians impacted by brain injury.
Created in 1998 with the amalgamation of two organisations – Headway Tasmania Inc. and the Tasmanian Brain Injury Program Inc - BIAT held a morning tea at the launch of Brain Injury Awareness Week in August to commemorate this important event.
We were honoured to have Sue Hodgson OAM, one of the founders of the brain injury program in Tasmania, cut the birthday cake, alongside current BIAT Executive Officer of 16 years, Deborah Byrne, and BIAT Committee of Management President of 6 years, Dario Tomat. The cake was kindly donated by Lipscombe Larder, Sandy Bay.
During the celebration we looked back at highlights of the past 20 years; a detailed history of BIAT can be found in our 2017-2018 Annual Report which can be viewed on our website: http://www.biat.org.au/link-categories/biat-annual-reports
