We are able to provide valuable assistance during background research for any article or story you may be preparing. This can include providing story ideas and connecting you with subject matter experts; we also maintain a demographic and resource database which includes data on brain injury in Virginia, articles on brain injury, and information on programs and services throughout the commonwealth.

Founded 35 years ago by families and concerned professionals, the Brain Injury Association of Virginia (BIAV) is the only statewide non-profit organization in Virginia exclusively dedicated to serving individuals with brain injury, their families and those that care for and about them. The BIAV exists to be the primary source of information and personal support for thousands of individuals, families and professionals living in Virginia whose lives have been touched by a life-altering, often devastating injury; last year, the organization provided help, hope and healing to 7,500 people, and conducted or participated in 156 events to raise awareness and understanding of brain injury for 150,000 more.
