Ravalli County students, parents learn about brain injuries

HAMILTON - Bitterroot Valley students lined up on Thursday in Hamilton to get cleared to play fall school sports.

The Brain Injury Alliance of Montana is touring the state with a display to unmask some of the unknowns surrounding brain trauma. Uncovering the experience of brain injury survivors creates a space for everyone to learn about how to recognize a trauma that never looks the same twice.

“There can be short-term issues that have to be dealt with -- or there could be long-term, for the rest of somebody’s life. Its just very important to be able to get that proper treatment and recovery that somebody needs,” said Brian Injury Alliance of Montana executive director John Bigart.
