CROWLEY FAMILY SCHOLARSHIPS TO THE 2019 TBI SUMMIT
The Brain Injury Association of Ohio thanks the family of Brian Crowley for donations given in his memory. These donations supported scholarships to the 2019 TBI Summit, allowing brain injury survivors who would not otherwise been able to attend due to the financial constraints of the BIAOH. We also remember his mother, Joanne Crowley, President of BIAOH in the 1990s. Her dedication to her family and providing education and advocacy for those with brain injury made BIAOH who we are today. We are deeply grateful for their support of BIAOH in our mission to create a better future through brain injury prevention, research, education and advocacy.
