Traumatic Brain Injury: The Prevalence and Challenges of TBIs And Resources for Help

Long-time Channel 13 WGME news anchor Kim Block.

Each year, 2.5 million Americans suffer a traumatic brain injury — from falls, accidents, strokes and other common causes. For many TBI patients, life is never the same, but there are major advances in TBI treatment and understanding of the brain.

March is Brain Injury Awareness Month. Beloved TV journalist Kim Block, who suffered a major TBI after falling on the ice, will share her story. We’ll also hear from the doctor who leads Goodwill’s clinical program and learn about support groups and resources.

Guests

Kim Block, longtime anchor and reporter at WGME and TBI survivor

Dr. Tom Miller, clinical director, Goodwill of Northern New England; head of NeuroRehab

Daniel G. Kagan, attorney, Berman & Simmons

Carole Starr, author, “To Root & To Rise: Accepting Brain Injury”; founder and facilitator, Brain Injury Voices
