Joey Pants and I talked today with Tom Constand, President and CEO of the Brain Injury Association of Michigan, about what BIAMI does and their next fundraiser, "Rockin' for Rehab, 1950s v 1960s" which is this Friday, December 7th, 6:30 - 11:30 PM at the University Club, 3435 Forest Road, in Lansing.

(You can listen to the interview below)

You're invited to dance the night away with live music from Dr. Fab and the Off the Couch Band - there will be a dance contest!

The Love Your Brain Foundation reports that every thirteen seconds, someone suffers a brain injury. That's about 2.5 million people in the US every year who sustain some type of brain injury. It's not uncommon for those with traumatic brain injuries/concussions to be depressed, anxious, feel isolated or have suicidal thoughts.

If you can't make the event this Friday night, your can still support BIAMI and the work they do to support brain rehabilitation centers across the state by donating here.

Also, the Love Your Brain Foundation is offering another free six week yoga series for people who've sustained a brain injury at Hilltop Yoga in Lansing starting this January - click here for more information on how to get registered for the free yoga.
