The mission of the Brain Injury Alliance of Iowa is to create a better future through brain injury prevention, advocacy, education, research, and support.
Founded in 1980, the Brain Injury Alliance of Iowa (BIA of
IA) is the second charter chapter of the Brain Injury
Association, Inc. Our members include people with brain
injuries, their family members, their friends, and professionals
who work with people who have had brain and head injuries.
We exist to support, assist, and advocate for persons with acquired brain injury and for their families. We advocate for and with people with brain injury and family members by responding to their challenges and representing their concerns through legislative efforts and active support of programs created for their needs.
We serve the brain injury community by working to secure and develop community-based services, encouraging research, establishing support groups, and providing access to pertinent information and resources.
We educate the public and increase statewide awareness of brain injury as a serious disability with lifelong consequences through the development and distribution of informational materials, news, and notices of conferences, symposia, and other meetings.
We strive to prevent brain injury through public awareness, education, and legislation. For more information, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 1-855-444-6443
