Roughly 14,000 British Columbians suffer a brain injury each year, and it remains the leading cause of death and disability for people under 45. Some 300,000 Canadians, meanwhile, live with brain injuries caused by stroke. Fraser Health’s Acquired Brain Injury Program and Douglas College hope to bring some light to a little discussed subject with the Brain Injury Film Festival, running every Monday in June.
June 6th: Marwencol
