(WFRV) – Brain injuries can be one of the most traumatic events in a person’s life, something that can have significant and long-lasting effects.
On this week’s Newsmaker Sunday with Tom Zalaski, Diane Mandler, the Co-Chair of BRAIN Fox Valley and Erin Schultz, Executive Director of SOAR talked about symptoms of a brain injury and how it’s affecting them.
A recent study shows that 53% of homeless or marginally housed people have suffered a traumatic brain injury. Mandler and Schultz talked about what is being done to help them and make sure something more serious doesn’t slip through the cracks.
There is also a virtual 2021 Wisconsin Brain Injury Conference being held on May 25. You can find more information on the conference here.
You can watch Newsmaker Sunday with Local 5’s Tom Zalaski each Sunday morning at 7:30 a.m.
