Every day, nearly 2 million people nationally suffer from head injuries as a result of accidents or assault, according to Diane Viescas of the Utah Head Injury Association.

The association and the Quinney Rehabilitation Institute of Holy Cross Hospital held a fund-raising reception last month in conjunction with more than a thousand events nationally. The theme was "A Thousand Points of Light."For information about the prevention and treatment of head injuries, call Quinney Rehabilitation Institute of Holy Cross Hospital at 350-4711.
