Currently in this Commonwealth, nearly 250,000 individuals are living with brain injury. On average, an additional 8,600 residents in this Commonwealth sustain long term disabilities from brain injury each year. The Department of Health's (Department) Head Injury Program (HIP) strives to ensure that eligible individuals who have a traumatic brain injury receive high quality rehabilitative services aimed at reducing functional limitations and improving quality of life. The Board assists the Department in understanding and meeting the needs of persons living with traumatic brain injury and their families. This quarterly meeting will provide updates on a variety of topics including the number of people served by HIP. In addition, meeting participants will discuss budgetary and programmatic issues, community programs relating to traumatic brain injury and available advocacy opportunities.
