MESSAGE FROM THE

BIASC BOARD PRESIDENT Greetings! March is Brain Injury Awareness Month and BIASC hosted the Upstate Run & Roll on March 30th at Cleveland Park in Greenville, SC. The Upstate Run & Roll was a great success and I would like to thank the Host Committee and the following sponsors: PRISMA Health, Academy Sports & Outdoors, Achilles International Greenville, Jackson Stanley Realtors, Drift Float & Spa, Foster Law Firm, Custom Synthesis, LLC, Countybank, Southern Om Hot Yoga and Philpot Law Firm. I would like to personally thank Joyce Davis, Executive Director, Kelli Mills, Administrative Assistant, and Katie Zenger, Safety Net Program Coordinator, along with the Workforce Development Committee of the South Carolina Brain Injury Leadership Council (SCBILC) for their tremendous work in making the Statewide Conference, Life With Brain Injury, so enjoyable, educational, and beneficial to survivors, caregivers, and professionals. Also, thanks to all the exhibitors and the information they provided to individuals, families, caregivers and professionals. The annual statewide conference is a way for everyone to learn, make connections and provide support to individuals with brain injury. We could not have provided the conference without the support of the following corporate sponsors: PRISMA Health, Heart of the Carolinas, Learning Services, Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital, the Law Office of Kenneth E. Berger, the South Carolina Department of Disabilities and Special Needs, and the South Carolina Developmental Disabilities Council. We were excited to have as our keynote speaker, Dr. Macie P. Smith, an award winning Alzheimer’s and dementia educator with over 19 years of experience working with aging and vulnerable populations in South Carolina. I encourage each of you to become a member or renew your membership with the Brain Injury Association of South Carolina. With your support we are able to continue providing community support, prevention, research, education and advocacy for individuals with brain injury and their families. Please visit our website, www.biaofsc.com to become a member or renew your membership. We invite you to make a donation online through Network for Good by visiting our website at biaofsc.com. I also invite you to advocate for funding for services and supports for your loved ones by contacting your Senator and Representative. You may also visit their website: https://www.scstatehouse.gov. Looking forward, the major fundraising event in 2020 will be the Shuck-A-Rama to be held in Charleston in March. The annual Statewide Conference will be held in July. Sherry Caldwell 2


MESSAGE FROM THE

SC BILC CHAIR

SOUTH CAROLINA BRAIN INJURY LEADERSHIP COUNCIL By Phil Clarkson

PHClarkson@yahoo.com

SCBILC: 20 YEARS OLD! In December 1999 the SCBILC met for the first time. Unlike some folks, we did not see the Y2K as an event that would shut down the world and bring an end to civilization as we know it. In that meeting we began efforts to help make things better for those who had realized or will realize a major life-changing experience-- TBI. Our mission is to provide leadership in promoting a range of services that empower persons with traumatic brain injury, are accessible to them, and are responsive to their needs and preferences. To accomplish our mission we (in a nutshell): • Provide a forum to address systems and service issues • Collect and analyze data, then make recommendations • Manage Federal Grants to SC for TBI • Work a collaborative environment of 30 members from gov. agencies, survivors/family, providers, students, friends And, oh yeah, what’s the difference between the SCBILC and the BIASC you’re thinking? Well, there is some overlap with mission and individual involvement, but the BIASC is the voice of the brain injury community, is more into advocating, provides information/support….. and much more. Hats off to the BIASC Exec-dir. Joyce Davis and ‘company’!! Through the years, being a member of the council has furthered my education (through quarterly meetings with speakers and committee meetings in-between) related to current systems performance and to consider beneficial improvements. Making informed decisions is a critical ingredient. The BILC has also offered me an opportunity to “mix” with some wonderful people. It has shown me that ‘government service agencies’ are not the enemy. Ok, having just read the above paragraph, an obvious question is “Who is the enemy?” While I can point to individuals and systems that impair our mission, the real enemy is me….. if I choose to be complacent! In the words of my ole friend Mahatma Gandhi, “It’s the labor, not the fruit of the labor, that’s important.” I’m with Gandhi on this one; as I see it, if I’m not out there working to do the right thing, then my silence is passive support for no improvements. You are all invited to attend our meetings and become involved. To receive our meeting announcements/agenda send an email to: mritter@ddsn.SC.Gov

Volunteer Highlight - Jasmine Norris

BEATING THE ODDS: ALUMNA DEFIES TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY PROGNOSIS TO PURSUE CAREER COMBINING HEALTH AND LAW

July 10, 2019 | Erin Bluvas, bluvase@sc.edu Doctors told Jasmine Norris that she would never be able to complete a higher education degree due to the traumatic brain injuries she had experienced, but she proved them wrong. The Arnold School alumna not only completed a bachelor’s in public health, she’s on track to graduate with her law degree from UofSC next year. And she has a new mission: to help others overcome the same obstacles she has faced. After growing up in Charleston, Norris moved to the Upstate to play soccer for Converse College. At the end of her first season, she experienced a career-ending concussion. Norris decided to transfer to South Carolina, but her challenges were far from over. “When I first got to USC my sophomore year, I had just suffered from my fourth concussion, and I struggled so much that first semester,” says Norris, who then went to see a neuropsychologist who diagnosed her with frontal lobe damage. “Once I knew what was wrong with me and that I wasn’t just broken, I found new ways to study and new ways to cope and ended up having a 3.7 GPA or higher every semester after that.”With her passion for understanding traumatic brain injuries growing every day, Norris decided to change her major to public health, but her difficult first semester lowered her chances of getting into the program. She went to see then-undergraduate program director Steve Barth, who decided to give her a chance and signed off on her request. Having that positive and encouraging atmosphere from the School of Public Health was such a great influence all in itself. I always felt like I mattered, and that I wasn’t alone no matter what the issue was and just knowing that in the back of your head can work wonders. -Jasmine Norris, B.A. in Public Health 6


“I don’t remember a lot of that year because of the concussions, but I remember going home and crying because things were finally looking up after a very dark year,” Norris says. “Steve Barth probably has no idea how much of an impact he has made on my life, but every time I’ve accomplished something big since then, I’ve thought of that moment and how I owe him so much gratitude for going out on a limb for me and giving me a chance.” Public health was the perfect setting for Norris, who had always been intrigued by the field. During her undergraduate program, she completed an Emergency Medical Technician Certification to become an EMT, a job she has continued to hold through her law program as well. She’s also recently become a volunteer fire fighter with the Sandy Run Volunteer Fire Department. Norris says that her passion for helping people and working in emergency medical services allows her to help the community in many ways and connect with people on different levels. As a senior, she completed her Capstone Seminar project on the psychological aftermath of traumatic brain injuries. Sara Corwin, associate dean for undergraduate student affairs, oversaw the course and served as an important mentor for Norris. “Dr. Corwin definitely inspired me to keep working my butt off and not let the doctors telling me I may not be able to graduate get to me and really helped me believe that I can do absolutely anything I set my mind to if I’m willing to put in the work,” she says of her advisor. “Having that positive and encouraging atmosphere from the School of Public Health was such a great influence all in itself. I always felt like I mattered, and that I wasn’t alone no matter what the issue was and just knowing that in the back of your head can work wonders.” Now a third-year law student, Norris continues to amass knowledge related to traumatic brain injuries. This spring, she successfully crowd funded travel expenses to attend the 32ndAnnual North American Conference on Legal Issues in Brain Injury and the 13th World Congress on Brain Injury in Toronto. As one of more than 1,000 attendees from around the world, Norris learned from experts who spoke on topics related to both the medical and legal fields. She noted, however, that among the 1,000 participants, only 40 attorneys were in attendance. The lack of representation by those in the legal field made it clear to Norris that there was a lot of catching up to do – and a lot of opportunity. Norris is still working out the details on how to combine traumatic brain injuries and law into a career, but some of her ideas include addressing policy concerns and the lack of education that prevents traumatic injuries from being handled properly by schools, sports teams and health care providers. She’s also thought about running a non-profit that specializes in helping veterans and athletes recover and find new purpose in life after traumatic brain injuries prevent them from serving their country or playing their sport. A lot of things in life are out of our control, but how we react to things is completely in our control. My biggest struggle ended up fueling my greatest passion and for that I’m forever grateful. -Jasmine Norris, B.A. in Public Health “I would really like to find a way to address the issues surrounding the psychological aftermath that often comes with suffering from traumatic brain injuries,” says Norris, who volunteers with the Brain Injury Association of South Carolina and has given guest lectures at The Citadel to raise awareness. “A brain injury can be a very lonely and isolating injury that can change your entire life, even change who you are as a person.” Norris knows from experience. Throughout the five concussions she’s experienced in the past 10 years, she has been told countless times to “find a new normal” – well-meaning advice that is easier said than achieved. 7


“My injuries are a constant obstacle in my life and for a long time doctors told me I would not graduate from undergrad, much less ever be able to attend law school,” Norris says. “If I can make life a little easier for others that are struggling with traumatic brain injuries or give them some hope and show them that they aren’t alone, I would be very content with life.” She’s continuing to take steps toward that goal through her role as an EMT and volunteer as well as her own continuing education and research efforts. This fall, for example, Norris will complete an independent research project on traumatic brain injuries based on what she learned at the conferences she attended in Toronto as well as her ongoing activities. “No matter what hardships you face, things will always get better if you’re resilient and persevere. If you consistently do positive things for yourself every day, whether that’s going to class, volunteering somewhere, deciding to continue your education at the next level, or simply going to the gym, no matter where you end up in life, there’s no way you can fail,” Norris says of the lessons she’s learned. “A lot of things in life are out of ur control, but how we react to things is completely in our control. My biggest struggle ended up fueling my greatest passion and for that I’m forever grateful.”

Jasmine Norris Jasmine Norris (shown below, teaching local elementary school kids about career opportunities in emergency medical services) graduated from the Arnold School with a Bachelor of Arts in Public Health and is a third-year student in the USC School of Law.

Continued from our Cover Story: Throughout the project, BIASC will be working closely with Dr. Karen McAvoy, a nationally renowned concussion-management expert, to assist us with the customization and promotion of the REAP Manual for SC. The REAP (Remove/Reduce, Educate, Adjust/Accommodate, Pace) Manual is a community-based inter-disciplinary team approach to concussion management that has been customized in more than 10 states. (Please visit www.REAPconcussion.com for more information.) Our leadership team, the BISN Task Force, is a group of experts from multiple different fields and they have worked together all spring to customize the manual for our state. BIASC is thrilled to be the organization that brought the REAP Manual to SC! Our website, www.braininjurysafetynetsc.com is now live and has plenty of information and resources for multiple audiences, including families, educators, school administrators, school nurses and psychologists, healthcare providers, mental health professionals, guidance counselors and policymakers at all levels. We will continue to add resources throughout the grant project and your input is welcome! For additional information about the project, please contact Project Coordinator Katie Zenger at safetynetcoordinator@biaofsc.com.

“Football, Head Trauma, & Art” - BIASC Provides Expertise at 701 Center for Contemporary Art’s Panel Discussion

On Wednesday evening, June 26, the Brain Injury Association of South Carolina participated in the Panel discussion: “Football, Head Trauma & Art” at Columbia’s 701 Center for Contemporary Art (701 CCA). In his exhibition that ran from May 23rd to July 7th, 2019, Jason Kendall, also known as kendallprojects, addresses American Football culture by exploring themes of identity construction, masculinity, violence in sports and conditional self-worth based on physical performance. The panel focused on the dangers of head trauma in American Football, the self-destructive nature exhibited by many athletes, as well as art’s ability to raise awareness of the issue. The discussion centered around the question: How has American football culture addressed the risk of brain injury and the physical toll of the sport on the brains and minds of athletes? The panelists and moderator were: Jason Kendall, artist and former college football player Dr. Ashley Bryant Harbin, Lake Psychological Services, LLC Dr. Robert Davis Moore, Professor and Researcher, Department of Exercise Science, Arnold School of Public Health, at the University of South Carolina Katie Zenger, MPH, Safety Net Coordinator at Brain Injury Association of SC Moderator: Chris White, film producer, director, screenwriter

BIASC’s Exhibit at the SC Optometric Professionals Association From August 22nd through the 24th of 2019, the Brain Injury Association of South Carolina built a new partnership with the South Carolina Optometric Professionals’ Association (SCOPA) by attending and exhibiting at their annual conference in Hilton Head, SC at the Westin Resort and Spa. Katie Zenger and Katie Davis provided information to attendees about the importance of vision professionals understanding and identifying signs of concussion in young people. Dr. Katie Davis is a member of the SCOPA Board and is the South Carolina College of Vision Development State Coordinator. Dr. Davis is also a member of the SC Brain Injury Safety Net’s Taskforce, and is working to raise awareness among her peers about the connections between vision problems and concussion in children and adolescents. Recent research suggests that over 50% of patients with concussion or post-concussion syndrome have visual problems that may cause headaches, eye headaches, double vision, eye strain or blurred vision (VisionHelp Initiative, 2019). Optometrists have a unique and incredibly important opportunity to help young people by identifying untreated concussion symptoms early and co-manage them with neuro-optometric rehabilitation and vision therapy services.

A Nationally Acknowledged Leader Every year at the end of October the Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) has their National Conference. Without fail, BIASC walks away with a great deal of information to bring back and share with our survivors and their family or caregivers. We’ve been quite excited to receive several awards at the conference: In 2012 we received the Award of Excellence for Advocacy; In 2016 and 2018, we received the Award of Excellence for Fundraising. This year, BIASC Executive Director, Joyce Davis, received State Association Leadership Award for Chief Staff Professional of the Year. Although BIASC was unable to send anyone to the BIAA conference this year, it is fitting that she received this particular award.

2019 Life with Brain Injury Statewide Conference: Exciting and New

We began the search for a new venue to host the 2019 conference the very next day after the 2018 conference. We wanted the location to be centralized, roomy, comfortable and accommodating to everyone. Now that we’ve closed the chapter on the 2019 conference, I honestly believe that we were able to check off every item on the list. To make sure we dotted all the “i’s” and crossed all the “t’s”, we had everyone complete an “Overall Conference” survey before they leave. According to your responses, the only real challenge we faced was that it was too cold. This concern will be addressed with the R2i2 staff so that we can all be a little more comfortable next year. We ask that you please mark your calendars for the 2020 Life with Brain Injury Conference, Friday, July 31, 2020. We also feel like the 2018 format was slightly better than 2019, so we’ll be going back to the Open Remarks and Announcements at 9am rather than during the lunch break. We will also make doubly sure to keep the coffee, water and milk flowing all day long. We have a small request, if anyone has any ideas or suggestions about a keynote speaker or session presenter for the 2020 conference, we invite you to send us your suggestions. Please email us at director@biaofsc.com. Did you know……..  At the end of a conference, all sessions that are released by the presenter are posted to our website and are left up until the next conference? Check us out at www.biaofsc.com, Events and News.  All members of the BIASC can register for the conference at a discounted rate? If you’re not a member we encourage you become one by registering online at www.biaofsc.com, Memberships. Make sure you review our membership perks.  When you fill out ALL of the surveys at the conference and return them before you leave, we are better prepared to serve you and meet your needs at the next conference? BIASC loved having all of you at R2i2 for this year’s conference. We’re so glad to be a part of such a vibrant, inclusive community. Please enjoy these photos from the 2019 conference.
