The People Behind Brain Injury Resource Center
Constance Miller, MA.
When bad things happen to Constance Miller of Seattle, Washington, she blazes a trail through them and then pulls others along behind her. As a career advocate of human rights and accessible health care, Miller has solved her own health problems and helped thousands of others who share the same predicament. 

    When a Dalkon Shield caused her illness and injury, Miller became one of the nation's foremost experts on the Shield and its effects on women's health. Millerís work on behalf of Shield-injured women has been featured in national magazines such as Ms., Essence, and Woman's World. Miller has assisted thousands of women to recover millions of dollars in compensation for their Dalkon Shield injuries. She staffed a non-profit help line that assisted injured individuals. 

    In 1982, a car accident left her with a "closed-head" brain injury; there was no visible wound, but she was experiencing pain, memory loss, disorientation, visual, sleep and mood disorders. Most physicians told people who were having such symptoms after accidents that they were imagining them. Upon receiving such a diagnosis from her doctor; Miller went into research mode and uncovered the secrets of the changes she recognized in herself. 

    She applied what she learned from her brain injury research and her activism to selecting her doctors and lawyers. Such deliberate and pragmatic partnering led to effective, client-centered rehabilitation program and a gratifying resolution for her injury claim.

     Most recently she has assisted in the development of diagnostic and treatment guidelines on Concussion in Sports; for the  America Academy of Neurology. Additionally she helped the National Institutes of Health to draft its TBI Rehab Consensus Conference Statement; and acted as a consultant to the Federal Interagency Conference on TBI 2000.
