School of Nursing hosts traumatic brain injury camp
Over 10,000 Alabamians are impacted by traumatic brain injury, or TBI, annually, and many will experience short and long-term cognitive, behavioral, and physical disabilities that impede their ability to return to home, school or work. The multi-disciplinary approach included teams from the departments of speech and hearing, audiology, social work, nursing and kinesiology.
From June 29–July 1, 15 Alabama residents met with Auburn University faculty and students to discover new methods, ideas, strategies and technologies for adjusting to life following a TBI. The camp was organized by the Alabama Head Injury Foundation, or AHIF, whose mission is to help improve the quality of life for survivors of TBI and for their families.
