Supporting Patients and families

Supporting Patients and Families

The local non-profit organization Birdies 4 Brains recently established the Birdies 4 Brains Superhero Fund at MIDB to support critical programs, clinical needs and amenities, while also providing financial assistance to patients and families. The fund will provide immediate support to families that are facing financial challenges related to critical illness, mental and behavioral health conditions, and brain injury. This support will help advance MIDB's goal to alleviate societal and personal problems in order to focus on early diagnosis and interventions that promote brain health throughout the lifespan. "The core mission of B4B is to help those who need it directly," said Brian J. Eder, Birdies 4 Brains co-founder and partner. "Our relationship with MIDB allows us to magnify our impact and help more people in our community. We’re excited about the future of what’s possible and look forward to many years of partnership."
