NeuroRestorative Marks Brain Injury Awareness Month
Every year during the month of March, the nation recognizes
Brain Injury Awareness Month in an effort 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. This
year, NeuroRestorative has introduced its first Voices of Brain Injury
campaign, allowing our participants and staff to share their stories of bravery
and compassion throughout the month.
“We are proud of the hard work and dedication of our
participants as they move along their rehabilitation journeys and of the staff
who serve them,” said Bill Duffy, Chief Operating Officer of NeuroRestorative. “As a leader in post-acute brain injury
rehabilitation, NeuroRestorative is focused on empowering our participants to
achieve their highest potential, as well as educating others about living with brain
injury and the measures that should be taken to help prevent brain injury from
