Guide to Writing about Traumatic Brain Injury in News and Social Media

To better inform coverage of traumatic brain injury (TBI) in news and social media, CDC developed the Guide to Writing about Traumatic Brain Injury in News and Social Media.

The Guide is designed for media writers, editors, and bloggers. It includes:

  • Statistics, most frequent causes, and signs and symptoms of TBI;
  • Descriptions of who is at greatest risk for TBI;
  • Sample press content and story ideas;
  • Information for sports writers about how to broaden the content and impact of TBI stories; and
  • Tips on TBI prevention that can be included in stories.
