Abstract
Traumatic brain injury is the silent epidemic of our time. In spite of the millions who sustain a TBI every year, very few medical professionals, legal scholars, employers and educators understand the reality of what the survivor and family members experience. The most powerful way to get a full understanding of the impact of TBI is directly from the perspective of a survivor. I present this program as an attorney regarding a “law case” of an “All American” college student on vacation with his college friends. One night he was walking and was struck by a drunk driver’s vehicle. His parents were called in the middle of the night and asked to consent to organ donation due to their son’s severe traumatic brain injury and other catastrophic injuries. The parents’ declined to consent to organ donation and instead got a room in the hospital to be with their son 24/7. After seeing the powerful photographs of the student in a coma, the audience is delighted to learn that he awoke after almost two (2) weeks, survived and had a full recovery. They are then astounded by the announcement that the attorney speaker before them is actually the TBI survivor who is the feature of the program. The remainder of the program educates the audience about TBI from the perspective of the survivor and family, while also providing valuable tools to help them in their own professional and personal capacities when dealing with traumatic brain injury.
