Once again, our friends and partners at Kaizen Brain Center have showed their commitment and support for the brain injury community by sponsoring the number card that EACH participant will get when they check in at the 2024 surviveHEADSTRONG Walk & Health Fair in 2 DAYS!!!

Dr. Ahmed, founder and Medical Director, has been a speaker in our Saturday Education meetings, he has been a member of our Professional Advisory Council for year and this is the third year-in-a-row that they have sponsored the participant number cards!

The Kaizen Brain Center is known for their revolutionary approach to improving brain health by translating the latest evidence-based research into high-quality clinical practice and concierge patient care. They were established to help patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and concussion who weren’t receiving proper medical care and were at risk of developing progressive neurological conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or Parkinson’s disease. The goal of their programs is to provide a holistic approach to care that addresses all aspects of your health and well-being. These programs are tailored for each individual patient to promote long-term health and wellness. To learn more about their services, go to: https://hubs.li/Q02pZfFv0
