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’.
Date: Sunday 20th August
Venue: Tasmanian Hockey Centre, Bell Street, New Town, TAS
RSVP: to BIAT by Friday 18th of August
Telephone: 03 6230 9800
Light refreshments will be provided.
