Mayor Bob Buckhorn Signs Proclamation Recognizing March as Brain Injury Awareness Month in Tampa, Florida

 Tampa, FL. On Tuesday, March 12, 2012, Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn will sign a proclamation officially recognizing March as Brain Injury Awareness Month.  NeuroRestorative, a leading provider of post-acute rehabilitation services for people with brain and spinal cord injuries, and other neurological challenges, is proud to support the city of Tampa’s efforts to raise awareness of brain injury by honoring the millions of people who live with it, and the need for prevention, access to care, research and advocacy.

“NeuroRestorative is honored to serve individuals with brain injury in Tampa as well as throughout the state of Florida,” said Bill Duffy, NeuroRestorative's Chief Operating Officer.  “We commend the city of Tampa for recognizing Brain Injury Awareness Month, and helping to educate and raise awareness throughout the community.” 

NeuroRestorative’s brain injury programs are individually tailored to help participants live as independently as possible and enjoy a full and productive life, offering professional assistance and unparalleled resources to those we serve – from addressing medical complexities to providing state-of-the-art rehabilitation to delivering ongoing community-based supports.

“Having early access to care is vital to increasing the quality of life for individuals with brain injury,” said Jane Imboden, Vice President of Operations for NeuroRestorative’s SouthEast Region.  “With a range of program settings throughout the state of Florida, including locations in Tampa, Orlando, Sarasota,  Clearwater and other nearby communities, NeuroRestorative can meet the needs of participants at any stage of post-acute rehabilitation.  The mayor’s proclamation will further our efforts to educate the community about the need for such services.” 

With over 100 locations in eighteen states, NeuroRestorative’s dynamic and innovative programs are delivered in community-based settings where individuals can participate in carefully structured opportunities to recover function following injury.
