As the summer season winds down, members of our Brain Injury Program gathered in a large pavilion at Tawasentha Park in Altamont, NY for their annual Brain Injury Awareness Day. Here, they carved out time to remember their past, reflect on their journey, and think about their goals for the year ahead.

Together, they enjoyed a meal, shared their stories, and celebrated each other’s victories. There was a display of art created by program participants, tee shirts for sale, and even raffle prizes.

The keynote speaker was Christina LeBeau, Director of Advocacy and Engagement of the Brain Injury Association of New York State. Christina works to increase awareness as well as campaign for public policy changes to improve and expand public policies regarding brain injury. She talked about her personal story of why she got involved in that agency and communicated her affection for the Living Resources Brian Injury Program and its participants and shared upcoming events to increase awareness about Brain injuries.
