BIA Week 2016

August 15, 2016

BIAT is proud to support National Brain Injury Awareness in 2016, with the focus on Young Stroke.

Often referred to as the 'hidden' or 'invisible' disability, BIAT is supporting National Brain Injury Awareness Week in 2016. There is little understanding in the community about brain injury, and the impact it can have on individuals - and National BIA Week aims to raise awareness of ABI in the community and assist in the reduction of the incidence of brain injury. Learn more at our dedicated page at http://www.biat.org.au/biat-bia-week.
