2.4 million Americans sustain a brain injury each year. Most people with a traumatic brain injury (TBI) recover quickly and fully, but for some people, symptoms can last for days, weeks, or longer. And in severe cases, a TBI can lead to coma and even death. Brain Injury Awareness Month’s goal is to increase education and national funding for research and prevention.
