BIAA HOME : CONFERENCE REGISTRATION : KANSAS : PREVENTION

Brain Injury Prevention

Most, but not all, traumatic brain injuries can be prevented. Part of the mission at BIAKS is to prevent traumatic brain injuries.

Each year, the Association gives away bicycle helmets to children in need. With each helmet, the child is educated on the importance of wearing the helmet correctly to prevent brain injury.

Staff and volunteers educate elementary, middle and high school students about the importance of safety belt and helmet usage, as well as other injury prevention strategies. Videos on injury prevention are available in our lending library for any group.

To apply for our helmet program, please complete an application. Due to funding restrictions, not all requests can be filled. Please note, certain circumstances may require a volunteer from your organization to pick up helmets.

For more information on Prevention, go to the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention’s site, and search the word “Heads Up”.

For more information on Concussions, go to the Brain Injury Association of America's Concussion Information Center.
