Brain Injury Survivor Camp Hosted at University of Alabama


(WBRC) – The Alabama Head Injury Foundation is hosting its last day of their survivor camp Thursday.

The therapy-based camp is not only for head injury survivors, but their care givers too. The foundation teamed up with the University of Alabama to provide several exercises to better help them move forward with their recovery.

UA students studying the fields of nutrition, social work, music therapy, speech and nursing worked with participants of the camp to provide activities such as music and art demonstrations to help them adjust to what they call their “new normal” emotionally, mentally and physically.

The camp is geared towards survivors of traumatic brain injury and their caregivers who are three or more years removed from their injury. CONTINUE
