Grassroots Advocacy


Dedicated members of the Brain Injury Alliance of Iowa (BIA-IA) work together to increase the public's awareness of brain injury and its consequences, develop support systems, encourage appropriate rehabilitation for survivors, and disseminate information about brain injury. BIA-IA believes that everyone who faces life after brain injury deserves the opportunity to achieve maximum functioning. BIA-IA advocates for statewide public and private services and the funding to pay for them.

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. The Alliance participates with the Advisory Council on Brain Injuries (ACBI) and other partners in efforts to improve Iowa’s capacity to support and serve Iowans experiencing brain injury and their families. These activities are guided through a state planning process governed by the ACBI and the current state plan at this link: Iowa State Plan for Brain Injury.
