Hass, of Louisville, is the first ever recipient of the NABIS Michael Davis Advocacy Award, named in recognition of a board member who passed away last year.
The award was given in honor of her "commitment and dedication to the field of brain injury and her advocacy work to establish programs and service for persons with brain injury in Kentucky, many of which serve as models for similar efforts around the country," says the release.
The conference, recently held in Florida, was attended by almost 400 multidisciplinary brain injury professionals from around North America who gathered to learn and share the latest developments from the field of brain injury. The principal mission of the organization is moving brain-injury science into practice.
