Many people in our communities are living a lower quality of life because of the chronic effects of acquired brain injury. ABI Wellness BEARS Ambassador Program is designed to help those living with brain injuries to become a part of the ABI Wellness community. This program will enable brain injury survivors to play a key role in raising awareness and increasing access to ABI Wellness programs in their community, further advocating community support for individuals with brain injuries and helping these individuals improve their quality of life.

What would you like to achieve in your role as Ambassador?
