Brain Fair at South Regional Library

Nonprofit Miracles Among Us, Inc., will present its third annual Brain Fair to help those coping with the stress and function challenges of recovering from brain injuries, from noon to 4 p.m., March 10, at the South Regional Library of Collier County, in Naples. The educational event will feature a Brain Minders puppet show provided by the Pilot Club of Naples; Ike Alama-Francis, former NFL player with the Detroit Lions and Miami Dolphins; bike helmet giveaways, speakers and presentations by experts in brain health, vendors, door prizes, kids’ events; and more.

Organizers say there are more than 12,000 documented cases of people with brain injuries residing in Collier and Lee counties, exemplifying the need to provide research and educational opportunities. Attendees can share and understand information to avoid frustrating results of missed or delayed diagnoses of brain injury. Fielding numerous calls and assisting families in need of assistance has been a focus of founders Suzan Berg, a brain injury survivor, and her husband, Allan Berg.

Admission is free, donations accepted. Location: 8065 Lely Cultural Pkwy. For more information, call 239-529-5284, email or visit
