Advisory Board

The West Virginia TBI Advisory Board is an organization that is established by the WVU CED and partner agencies under the federal Traumatic Brain Injury Act (P.L. 104-166). The purpose of the Board is to provide guidance and feedback to state, local, and private partners on design, development, and implementation of statewide services and supports for people with TBI. To this end, the Board’s charge is to help develop and strengthen West Virginia’s ability to appropriately serve those with TBI by:

  • Analyzing the needs of people with TBI, their families, and caregivers and proposing strategies to meet those needs;
  • Reviewing best practices and making subsequent recommendations to partners;
  • Participating in the development of a statewide plan for TBI;
  • Involving people with TBI and their families in the development of policies and programs.
