A new brain injury advisory council for the state met for the fist time today.

The council, created this past legislative session, will work to educate those in our community on how to best serve those currently suffering from brain injures and how to prevent them.

The 12 member elected council is made up of someone with a brain injury, a family member, lawmakers, and service providers.

They hope to work together to find the best ways to serve those with brain injuries.

“[The council is meeting to discuss] developing a strategic plan for the state so the state would have a plan for their future action and moving forward for activities and initiatives.” Rebecca Quinn, North Dakota Brain Injury Network says.

The council, appointed by the governor, will meet quarterly to discuss issues surrounding brain injury and brain injury services.
