Whether you are living with a brain injury or care for someone who is, the complexity of access to care – even medications – can be cumbersome. Advocating for yourself or a loved one may feel impossible – but you are not alone. With the right knowledge and support, you can better communicate with providers and payors to ensure you or your loved one is receiving the highest level of care. This session will provide an introduction to a BIAA self-advocacy toolkit, strategies for communicating with providers, and resources for finding support.

This webinar is provided at no cost with support from Avanir Pharmaceuticals.
