2014 Conference Wrap Up
The Brain Injury Association of Missouri (BIA-MO) 10th Annual Statewide Conference was a hit yet again this year. With a schedule packed with wonderful speakers and educational topics, the audience left with invaluable information to now pass onto their coworkers, clients and more. BIA-MO wants to thank all of the sponsors, exhibitors, attendees and volunteers that helped this to be another great Conference.
Sessions held on Thursday, October 16 and Friday, October 17 focused on topics of most interest to healthcare professionals, rehabilitation specialists, physicians, neuropsychologists, vocational counselors, social workers, case managers, and other professionals who work in the field of brain injury on a regular or periodic basis.
On Saturday, October 18, the Survivor and Family seminar was held free-of-charge for survivors of brain injury and their families. Saturday also featured the Awards Luncheon and Annual Meeting where we all got to see the Exceptional Award Nominees receive their much deserved awards.

It's About the Mission
This year we did not play golf - everyone stayed at home, relaxed and knew that every dollar they donated will directly support services of the Brain Injury Association of Missouri.
Their Sunday afternoon made a difference for families impacted by brain injury.
