 MDRS and MS Braves Promote Sports Injury Awareness


  
JACKSON, Mississippi - Thursday, May 13, the Mississippi Department of Rehabilitation Services (MDRS) will sponsor the Mississippi Braves game at 7:00PM at Trustmark Park in Pearl.
 
MDRS is a state agency that provides resources to help Mississippians with disabilities find new careers, live more independently, overcome obstacles, and face new challenges.  Tonight’s sponsorship promotes the prevention of sports related concussions, traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries.
