CDC Funds Center on Brain Injury Research and Training For “Return to School” Program

We are pleased to announce that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention awarded Psychology’s Center on Brain Injury Research and Training (CBIRT) a 4-year, $2.2 million cooperative agreement to study an established Return to School program for students with traumatic brain injury. The study will compare health, academic and social outcomes of children and youth with brain injury who are served by the Central Oregon TBI (COR-TBI) team model with comparison school districts in Washington and Ohio. The project is led by Ann Glang from CBIRT and Deanne Unruh from the College of Education.
