Federal Interagency Conference on TBI Planned for June 2011

The third Federal Interagency Conference on Traumatic Brain Injury will be held June 13-15, 2011, at the Washington D.C. Hilton. Sponsored by a consortium of federal agencies and advocacy groups, the conference brings together clinicians, researchers, consumers, and policymakers to share cutting-edge advances in TBI research and clinical care. The 2011 conference will include — for the first time — civilian and military agencies, including the Department of Defense and the Veterans Administration, in addition to the National Institute of Disability and Rehabilitation Research, the National Institutes of Health, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, and other leading federal players in research and clinical care for TBI.

The conference will feature outstanding speakers and symposia on a wide variety of topics within several broad themes:

  • Effective practices for community integration
  • Seminal advances in TBI research
  • The promise of technology
