History of Awareness Week
In 2001, a group of parents came together and developed materials, brochures and other information for an Awareness Week. Their goal was (as it continues to be) to bring an increased visibility to brachial plexus injuries.
As a completely, volunteer-run organization, this groups efforts were key in kicking off not only the Awareness Week tradition but the goals and aims of the organization as whole. What is even more impressive is how the materials have stood the test of time and remain relevant for those injured still today.
We encourgage you to use these materials throughout the year to continue to bring awareness to those injured, as well as helping to prevent more injuries from occurring.
