TBI can be acquired in many ways and can be life-altering or even fatal
if left untreated.
According to the CDC, moderate to severe traumatic brain
injuries can lead to a lifetime of physical, cognitive, emotional, and
behavioral changes. People with TBI are also more likely to abuse
alcohol or illicit drugs and die from seizures, accidental drug
poisoning, infections, and pneumonia.

working to raise awareness and prevention on TBI. We’ve created an
in-depth yet digestible resource page to educate people on TBI, symptoms
