Brain Injury Awareness: BIANS (Hfx) presents mini-film festival

by John McKiggan

June is Brain Injury Awareness Month.

Every year in Nova Scotia between 2200 and 3500 people sustain a brain injury through a variety of ways such as falls, motor vehicle accidents, strokes, near drowning and aneurysms. No one recovers 100% from a brain injury. Dealing with the effects of brain injury is a lifelong journey for brain injury survivors and their families. The Brain Injury Association of Nova Scotia works to enhance the quality of life for survivors and their families.

To promote Brain Injury Awareness Month, the Halifax Chapter of the Brain Injury Association is inviting the public to two special movie viewings this month in the Royal Bank Theatre at the Halifax Infirmary on Summer Street.

On June 23rd at 7:30 pm the movie ‘Braindamadj’d Take II’ will be shown. On June 29th at 7:30 pm the documentary movie ‘Breakaway’ will be shown with a post-movie discussion with the subjects and producer of the film.

There will be no admission charged to these movie showings, but donations to the Brain Injury Association of Nova Scotia will be accepted at the door.
