Brain Injury Awareness Month
March is Brain Injury Awareness Month. Throughout this month, BIAMI has various activities, events, initiatives, and special programming across the state. BIAMI is actively working to help de-stigmatize brain injury, empower those who have survived, and promote the breadth and depth of support and rehabilitative care that is available in Michigan.
Annual Spring Tribute Dinner & Auction
Annually, the Brain Injury Association of Michigan's Legacy Society recognizes its newest contributing members at the Spring Tribute Dinner. In addition, selected individuals who have contributed to the brain injury field, or have shown a demonstrated leadership in working to improve lives of persons with brain injuries or their families are selected as an honorary member.
Annual Fall Conference
The Brain Injury Association of Michigan’s Annual Fall Conference, held in conjunction with the Michigan Brain Injury Provider Council, is the largest of its kind in the country. It averages over 140 exhibitors and over 1500 attendees each year. We hold this event with the purpose of providing state-of-the art information about brain injury treatment and therapies, which will maximize rehabilitation and foster a good quality of life. The conference is designed to benefit therapy providers with their patients, as well as caregivers and brain injury survivors.
Every year, the Brain Injury Association of Michigan brings the brain injury community together with their legislators. Capitol Day is designed to inform and educate Michigan legislators about the current issues affecting individuals and organizations who have an interest in brain injury. Capitol Day is sponsored jointly by the Brain Injury Association of Michigan (BIAMI) and the Michigan Brain Injury Provider Council (MBIPC).
Annual Meeting & Spring Fling
The Spring Fling is a chance for survivors to connect with each other for fun activities. They have the option to attend a pizza and karaoke night, a riverboat ride, or just enjoy in the Frankenmuth/Birch Run area. There will be a very brief meeting following lunch on Saturday for survivors to offer input in regards to upcoming events
BIAMI’s Annual Meeting is an opportunity to learn what has been happening at BIAMI, recognize Annual Award Winners, and new Board Members will be voted in by chapter representatives. Lunch will be provided.
