BIS Staff Member Katy Schnitger Featured in TSN Video

Each year an estimated 1.5 million Americans sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI). In honor of Brain Injury Awareness Month, Inova's Trauma Survivors Network (TSN) sat down to speak with members of Inova's Trauma Survivors Network about their life after TBI and the support they receive from TSN.

Many people do not know about brain injury unless they or a loved one experienced a brain injury. TSN brings people together who are affected by traumatic injuries including, traumatic brain injury. These connections help survivors and family members rebuild their lives after a serious injury. 

"It is important for me to spread awareness because my TBI was undiagnosed and dismissed for too long," explained Katy Schnitger, Office Manager and Outreach Specialist at Brain Injury Services.

"My family's recovery from our trauma was prolonged because we were trying to put our lives back together without all the pieces," added Schnitger, who is also a former BIS Client.
