Brain Pet Scan

During the August recess, as a follow up to a meeting held on June 15, 2010, representatives from HRSA and various TBI stakeholders held a teleconference to plan work on a long-term plan for the Federal TBI Program and also to discuss possible changes to the TBI Act come reauthorization in 2012.

HRSA, BIAA and the National Association of State Head Injury Administrators (NASHIA) have begun to assemble an advisory board to work on the long-term plan and to also manage and incorporate public comment and transparency. BIAA is encouraged by the partnership forged between TBI stakeholders and HRSA and is looking forward to elevating the Federal TBI Program within HRSA and to advocating for increased funding for the program by leveraging agency cooperation in program improvement and efficiency on Capitol Hill.
