See below for a recap of some of the Brain Injury Awareness Month 2022 activities hosted by Hennepin Healthcare’s TBI Center. Though March is over, it’s always a good time to raise awareness of brain injury and recognize those impacted. See below for activities where you can still view and learn.
2022 Brain Injury Awareness Month Events
Putting the Pieces Together
March - May
Patients, staff, and community partners decorated puzzle pieces, which were on display in the hospital. Pieces were decorated to illustrate connection to brain injury. Together, they demonstrate how it takes a team to put the pieces together after brain injury. See photos of the display below.
Health Equity, Bias and TBI Care
Hear Dr. Talee Vang, Hennepin Healthcare’s own Director of Health Equity & Education, speak on the important topics of health equity and bias, and what this means in the world of TBI care. This session was recorded with a virtual audience in March of 2022.
Employee Bike Helmet Sale
We teamed with our Trauma Prevention Program for the annual employee bike helmet sale and sold almost 100 helmets over 2 days! What a fun way to protect so many brains. Proceeds benefit Hennepin Healthcare patients.
