I hope to continue my dedication to those affected by brain injury, and to increase the breadth of impact of this inspiring organization.
RALEIGH, North Carolina (PRWEB) February 06, 2012
Attorney Thomas Henson Jr., has been invited to join the Brain Injury Association of North Carolina’s (BIANC) board of directors. Henson, who focuses on traumatic brain injury litigation at local law firm HensonFuerst, will work with other BIANC board members to raise funds and give attention to the life-changing impacts of brain injuries.
“I am pleased to find another opportunity to help victims of traumatic brain injuries and their families, and I am honored that I have been asked to serve in this capacity,” Henson said. “The consequences of brain injuries can be tragic and are often overwhelming for those affected. Traumatic brain injury victims need and deserve our help, and the BIANC members do everything they can to maximize the quality of life for these victims and their families.”
Henson has been a sponsor and member of BIANC for several years and has led HensonFuerst’s cycling team in its annual participation in Ride for the Rock, a charity cycling event that benefits BIANC. The law firm also sponsors an annual video contest for local students that focuses on bicycle safety and the use of helmets to prevent brain injuries.
The BIANC board of directors is comprised of 18 members, including medical professionals who have experience treating brain injuries as well as victims of brain injury and their family members.
