Course Description and Statement of Need
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), about 2.5 million emergency department (ED) visits, hospitalizations, or deaths were associated with Traumatic Brain Injury in the United States (2010). Every day, about 138 people die from injuries that include traumatic brain injury (TBI). Those who survive suffer from disabling conditions that affect their quality of life.

Formal presentations will be accompanied by question and answer periods with general discussion.
