A coalition of health experts are teaming up to help people living with brain damage and other injuries. The group, called Project Partners, announced a five year plan to bring victims together, raise awareness across the state, and help families of people with brain injuries. Thom Delila broke his neck in 1972 and is trying to raise awareness for people with brain injuries.

“All people with disables want to be provided with information and know what resources are available. They want the opportunity to obtain appropriate medical and rehabilitation services, they need assessable housing, they want to engage in meaningful activities such as employment, recreation and leisure activities,” said Delila.
