Research In Focus for Brain Injury Awareness Month

March is Brain Injury Awareness Month, an observance organized by the Brain Injury Association of America. The recurring theme for this observance is Change Your Mind, a campaign designed to educate the general public about the incidence of brain injury and the needs of people with brain injuries and their families. Sharing useful research findings is one way that NARIC and the NIDILRR community support this mission.

NARIC’s Research In Focus series highlights new and interesting findings from NIDILRR-funded studies. Each article presents the findings in a reader-friendly format, including resources to learn more. Since we began the series in 2016, we’ve covered issues in brain injury in more than 15 articles. Take a look:

Brain Injury and Recovery

Brain Injury and Education

Brain Injury and Health and Wellness

Brain Injury and Relationships

These Research In Focus publications offer lay language summaries of findings from studies at NIDILRR-funded centers and projects across the US. Readers who are interested in learning more about the studies can follow the included links to the original journal articles available from publishers or order copies from our Information Specialists through our document delivery service.

Research In Focus covers a wide array of disability and rehabilitation research that has an impact across the life span of individuals with disabilities. Explore the collection and sign up for our News and Notes newsletter to be alerted when new issues are published.
