National Launch of Brain Injury Awareness Week 2015

Date

Monday, 17 August, 2015

Location

City Hall Geelong
30 Gheringhap St
Geelong, VIC, 3220

Description

Presented by Karingal, Brain Injury Australia, the Australian Injury & Disability Insurance Network, Barwon Health Acquired Brain Injury Education Project and The City of Greater Geelong.

Brain Injury Awareness Week 2015 will focus on a neglected minority of survivors of traumatic brain injury - women; who account for only one-third of all Australians living with a brain injury but for whom violence is a much more common cause of brain injury than men. The national launch will feature a presentation by 2011 Victorian Young Australian of the Year Anj Barker, who sustained a severe traumatic brain injury as a result of being assaulted by an ex-boyfriend.

Please note this event is invite-only
