2018 BIAMI Impact Report

WE ALL GET BY WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM OUR FRIENDS

Our 2018 strategic planning process, approved by the Board in January of last year, made explicit what the Brain Injury Association of Michigan (BIAMI) has always held implicitly: It’s all about survivors. To that end, our staff and the Association’s members have focused single-mindedly on that objective, and it’s my privilege in this Impact Statement to highlight what we’ve done, and what we’ve achieved, in each of the six pillars of our mission: advocacy, awareness, education, prevention, research, and support.

What’s remarkable about this past year is that while in the midst of advocating to preserve the Auto No-Fault (ANF) system of care, the BIAMI was able to achieve more than ever before in terms of survivor impact in every single area of operations. While that’s indeed a credit to our staff, members, and supporters, we have no intention of resting on our laurels. Whatever challenges arise throughout 2019, new or old, we’ll be redoubling our efforts – and will continue to do so as long as survivors and their families need our support. I invite you to learn more in the following pages about what the BIAMI does and the impact we have. And I invite you, as well, to join us and lend your support to our mission of reducing the incidence and impact of brain injury however you may prefer – as a volunteer, a member, a sponsor, or a donor.
