Living with Neurotrauma
In Hawai'i, neurotrauma injury is seen as a severe and chronic disability of a person that is attributable to an injury to the central nervous system, such as traumatic brain injury (TBI), spinal cord injury or stroke, and is likely to continue indefinitely.
We are Neurotrauma Supports of the State of Hawai'i Department of Health's Developmental Disabilities Division. We provide leadership through community partnerships to promote neurotrauma injury prevention programs, education and public awareness.
