Welcome to Brain Injury Association of Kansas and Greater Kansas City

More people are becoming familiar with brain injury. Information about brain injury is often seen and heard in the news, especially when connected with military conflicts and sports injuries. No one knows the full picture of brain injury until it becomes personal. It is at times like these that accurate and timely information is needed. Brain Injury Association of Kansas and Greater Kansas City (BIAKS) is here to help. We provide information and resources, training, support group information, education on preventing brain injuries and a caring ear when needed.
