CDC Injury Center & Lifetime Television Partner to Raise Awareness of TBI

30-Jun-2010

On the June 27th episode of Lifetime Television's show Army Wives, lead character Joan, was diagnosed with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).  CDC subject matter experts consulted with Army Wives writers and producers on TBI signs and symptoms and the importance of rest during recovery from a TBI.  The upcoming storyline on Joan's recovery is an example of a partnership between CDC, Hollywood Health & Society, and Lifetime Television to help raise public awareness and improve prevention, recognition, and response to TBI.
