Walk for Thought

Walk For Thought celebrates the accomplishments of individuals affected with brain injuries while raising awareness and funds for the Brain Injury Association of Kansas. All funds raised stay in our state to provide resources, support and information to thousands of survivors and their families.

1 in 10 individuals will be touched by brain injury. Brain injury can occur  anytime, anywhere, and to anyone. Let’s do our part to honor those whose lives have been impacted by brain injury.

In 2018, you can participate in the Walk for Thought on Memorial Day by registering for the walk as part of the Going the Distance for Brain Injury Memorial Day Run.

Survivor and Family Member Seminars

BIAKS presents two seminars each fall for survivors of brain injury and their family members. These seminars offer opportunities to meet others facing the same hurdles, talk with area service providers and learn more about brain injury. If you would like to be included on the mailing list for these seminars, please complete the “Contact Us’ form. 

Certified Brain Injury Specialist

Certified Brain Injury Specialist (CBIS) is a national certification program that establishes best practices for the training of individuals working with this population. Because of the wide variety of unique skills and knowledge required of those who treat persons with brain injury, certification is designed to address specific training issues in brain injury services and to complement other existing credentials.  For information, please visit Academy of Brain Injury Specialists
