Traumatic Brain Injury Fact Sheet


Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is the top cause of disability in the United States and is the signature injury of soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. While it affects the lives of millions of Americans each year, TBI remains a mystery to most Americans and the doctors and healthcare professionals that serve these individuals. 

This fact sheet is meant to raise awareness about TBI.
