Giffords sponsors traumatic brain injury town hall meeting

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Rep. Gabby Giffords is teaming up with doctors from Barrow Neurological Institute to raise awareness about traumatic brain injury.

They sponsored a virtual town hall meeting about the topic today.

That's the type of injury from which Giffords has been recovering, after being shot in the Tucson rampage last January.

Surgeons from Barrow say brain trauma is more common than you might think, especially for servicemen and women returning from overseas.
