Canadians across the country are currently observing June as National Brain Injury Awareness Month. Although the United States currently observes this period in March, now is another time to raise awareness about the seriousness and potential lasting consequences of a significant brain injury. Johns Hopkins Medical Center has created a useful website that discussses the many types of brain injuries, how they occur, and the deficits associated with a brain injury. To learn more, please visit their website.
