Support for Professionals
The Brain Injury Alliance of Washington provides free education and guidance to professionals on the topic of Brain Injury across Washington State! Brain Injury affects every community and despite it being the number two cause of death and disability in the United States and number one cause of death and disability in Washington State Youth, it remains a silent epidemic.
Our organization recognizes prevention is positively linked with education and foreknowledge. Therefore, BIAWA is excited to partner with professionals to provide professional development educational opportunities, access to resources & referrals, and guidance through our Resource Managers and Resource Line.
Please contact our organization for specific questions regarding your clients, concerns, or inquiries.
