BIAA Previews TeachAids’ Concussion Story Wall for National Concussion Awareness Day
To kick-off National Concussion Awareness Day, CrashCourse by TeachAids has joined together with the Brain Injury Association of America to celebrate the BIAA’s 40th anniversary. In recognition of today, we are showcasing 40 personal video concussion stories.
These 40 stories are a “sneak peek” preview of the nearly 4000 personal narratives which will be integrated into an interactive database as part of the Concussion Story Wall product, scheduled to be released by late fall. This will be an addition to the CrashCourse by TeachAids product suite. These stories include symptoms experienced as well as personal suggestions from those who have been injured by a concussion. The database is intended as a comprehensive resource for the many who are impacted including athletes, parents, coaches, officials, teachers, and military veterans. An additional highlight of the Concussion Story Wall will be a panel of 14 of the world’s leading medical experts addressing specific aspects of concussions related to symptoms, diagnosis, treatment and recovery.
“Our partnership with TeachAids has helped us bring state-of-the-art concussion education to individuals and families across the country. In honor of National Concussion Awareness Day and BIAA’s 40th anniversary, we are thrilled to share the stories of so many in the brain injury community and are grateful to TeachAids for their incredible Story Wall project.” –Susan Connors, BIAA President/CEO.
