ThinkFirst for Teens takes a serious look at risk-taking activities through the  eyes of young people who have suffered brain or spinal cord injuries. During this 45-minute presentation, Memorial educators discuss the anatomy of the brain and spinal cord. The highlight of the program is when students are introduced to a VIP speaker, or “Voice for Injury Prevention.”

ThinkFirst VIP speakers create a forum for open and frank dialogue by discussing how they were injured, how they could have prevented the injury and how they deal with life after paralysis or brain injury.
