Brain Injury Association of MA Names Dwork President of Board of Directors
Tuesday, November 29, 2016
“I’ve been fortunate to have had a front row seat to one of the most important events of the past generation: the change in our understanding of the human brain. Through the development of our board, collaboration with public and private agencies and business leaders, our support groups and members, and the use of technology, we’re expanding our organization’s reach," said Dwork.
Dwork is a magna cum laude graduate of the Boston University Law School and a former Assistant District Attorney for Middlesex County.
He is a lecturer in civil litigation as well as being the author of several scholarly articles, including “Preparation and Trial of the Traumatic Brain Injury Case” and “Trying the Soft Tissue Injury Case in Massachusetts.”
Dwork is preceded by Teresa Hayes, who served as president of the board for four years.
“Like many who serve, I did not seek out this prestigious position nor was it on my list of goals in life; yet, four of my five years on the board have been as the role of President,” Hayes said.
Under Hayes, the BIA-MIA surpassed its 30th anniversary. In early November, the Brain Injury Association of America awarded Hayes an Award of Excellence for Affiliate Association Leadership.
