California Police Chiefs Association Webinar –> Brain Injuries: Stigma & Recovery
Institutes of Health teamed up with the California Police Chiefs Association to provide the law enforcement community with additional insight on Brain Injuries: Stigma & Recovery. A brain injury is often referred to as a silent epidemic, as it is not well understood by the general public or by many healthcare professionals. Often, people with a brain injury have not been properly diagnosed and have not received treatment essential to healing. As a result, individuals are over medicalized, with a corresponding increase in disability, with costs and lost productivity estimated at $76.5 billion annually.
