As I am looking ahead to the summer and fall, I have been contacted by several people who want to promote awareness of specific conditions by planning something during their awareness months. I thought it would be helpful to compile a list, to help promote collaboration for those who are planning activities and to honor those who have been affected. My list is focused on neurologic conditions and rehabilitation professionals.
*Please email me with anything you want added to this list!
January - "Winter Sports TBI Awareness Month"
February - "American Heart Month" and "AMD/Low Vision Awareness Month"
March - "Multiple Sclerosis Education Month"
