North Carolina TBI Program gets grant

In the United States alone, one person suffers a brain injury every few seconds. According to the Brain Injury Association of America, around 1.4 million traumatic brain injuries occur annually nationwide. Many people are under the false impression that unless someone loses consciousness, he or she could not have experienced a traumatic brain injury. Medical professionals could fail to diagnose a TBI or fail to provide proper care. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Service has given the North Carolina TBI Program a four-year grant to be used on integrated care.
