Ashland, Ky.— According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 1.7 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury each year. 

To help brain injury survivors and those who care for them cope with the many day-to-day challenges, King’s Daughters Medical Center sponsors a Brain Injury Support Group, which meets at 4:30 p.m. the first Tuesday each month in the family resource room of the KDMC Rehabilitation Unit. The next meeting will take place Tuesday, March 6. 

“Brain injury can occur in anyone at any time from a variety of causes,” said Jo Etta King RN, continuum coordinator for King’s Daughters Medical Center’s Rehabilitation Center.  “Consequences of brain injury on survivors can be unpredictable, and the stress on family members and caregivers can be intense.” 

King said the free meetings will last about an hour and topics covered will vary based on the needs of the group. 

Patients and family members are welcome to attend. For more information about the KDMC Brain Injury Support Group, contact Jo Etta King at (606) 408-7407.
