Traumatic brain and spinal cord injury is a leading cause of disability and death among children and young adults. Many of these injuries are preventable. That’s where ThinkFirst comes in.
ThinkFirst seeks to educate people of all ages, communities, organizations and policy makers about risky behavior and injury, with the aim of changing behavior. At ThinkFirst of Northern Nevada, we teach people to “Use your mind to protect your body.”
