Roger R. Foisy Appointed to the Ontario Brain Injury Association Board of Directors

By Roger Foisy on August 7th, 2015

Over my years as an Ontario personal injury lawyer, I have seen the impact brain injury has had on many of my clients. Due to this, I have become a passionate advocate for brain injury awareness and I have completed courses from Brock University in Neurorehabilitation, Advanced Brain Injury Rehabilitation, Neurological Assessments: Beyond Testing to further my understanding of traumatic brain injury and recovery, and Children and Youth with Acquired Brain Injury.

It is my privilege to announce that I have been appointed to the Board of Directors for the Ontario Brain Injury Association (OBIA) during their recent Annual General Meeting. In this position, I will continue to be a member of the Brain Injury Association of Peel and Halton – my local area. I hope to bring my expertise and legal perspective to OBIA during my three year term.

About the Ontario Brain Injury Association

OBIA is a not-for-profit organization that is committed to spreading awareness and education about brain injury. They also focus on supporting and enhancing the lives of Ontarians living with a brain injury and their families.

OBIA offers:

  • Information and resources about brain injury
  • Toll-free helpline
  • Personal advocacy and support
  • Training and education for both families and professionals

I encourage you to visit their website, www.obia.ca, and review the resources available.

Concussion Support from OBIA

There’s no such thing as “just a concussion”. A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) and can have lasting effects.

OBIA recently launched a new weekly online support group for adults living with concussions. It is facilitated by two registered social workers who have experience with concussion and brain injury.
