Description

The Tony Meduri TBI Fund Inc. is excited to announce that UF Health Jacksonville will co-host the 6th Annual Tony’s Turkey Trot to expand brain injury awareness and brain injury care. Home to Northeast Florida’s only adult and pediatric Level I trauma center, UF Health TraumaOne, UF Health has a long history of treating patients who experience traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs. TBIs are most commonly caused by falls, motor vehicle and motorcycle accidents, sports-related injuries and assaults. UF Health physicians, nurses, therapists and other health care providers are dedicated to providing cutting-edge care. By participating in the 6th Annual Tony’s Turkey Trot, you advance lifesaving care during the early critical stages of the injury and support the holistic care of TBI survivors in our community.
