A research team in the Miller School’s Department of Rehabilitation Medicine has been awarded a federal Traumatic Brain Injury Model Systems grant. Funded by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research, the five-year grant will enhance rehabilitation services and research aimed at meeting the special needs of brain-injured individuals progressing through the clinical continuum, from emergency care to rehabilitation and community re-entry. Doug Johnson-Greene, Ph.D., M.P.H., ABPP, associate professor and Associate Vice Chair of Rehabilitation Medicine, and his team will partner with Jackson Health System, HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital of Miami, and a number of community organizations — including the Brain Injury Association of Florida, the Florida Department of Health’s Brain and Spinal Cord Injury Program, and the WellFlorida Council — to establish the South Florida Traumatic Brain Injury Model System (SF-TBIMS).
