Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana’s Research Department to “Bowl for Brain Injury” March 15th, 2013

Recent studies have shown that even mild brain injuries can have lasting effects on the brain. According to a study published in the journal,  Radiology, even one concussion can lead to brain atrophy: a measurable loss of both gray and white matter .

To help increase awareness, and to raise funds for research, education, prevention and treatment for brain injury, the Brain Injury Associaton will hold its inaugural “Bowling for Brain Injury” events this year. On Saturday, April 13, 2013,  a team of researchers from the Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana will  participate in the event. Our team, “The Spare Brains” and supporters currently consists of Dr. Flora Hammond, Dr. Jim Malec, Dr. Dawn Neumann, Dr. Jacob Kean, Jim Graham, Mindi Fox, Becky Runkel, Elena Gillespie, Kara Jodry, and John McCreary.

Please support “The Spare Brains”, in this year’s event. For more information or to donate, visit the Spare Brains and Brain Injury Association of Indiana’s website, at:
