The following are the current projects & partnerships
at the CEHSABI:
1. Partnerships with the Department of Health in Hawaii
and their partners. This collaboration is funded through
Hawai`i's TBI Implementation Project, funded by the U.S. Health
Resources Services Administration. Activities of the partnership
include developing the state's capacity to serve individuals
with brain injuries through professional development. Eight
students in Hawai`i are provided scholarships to take part
in the GW distance learning Graduate Certificate Program.
The CEHSABI is also assisting Hawaii in assessing its needs
for further development of state capacity, and students in
the GW Certificate program will contribute to the state efforts
by being a part of the Brain Injury Association of Hawaii's
Speaker's Bureau and doing other volunteer work with the BIAH
when they complete the program.

The partnership is a part of the D.C. TBI Post Demonstration
funded the U.S. Health Resources Services Administration.
Through this partnership, the CEHSABI will provide training
about TBI for the District of Columbia Schools (DCPS) personnel,
conduct a small study of transition services in the DCPS,
and assist the DOH in developing a resource directory of
TBI resources in DC as well as helping the Brain Injury
Association of DC to become a chartered affiliate of the
BIA of America..
A partnership with Radford University in Virginia will
on collaboration to incorporate the Graduate Certificate
Program into an Education Specialist (EdS) Degree option
for RU students and graduates. In addition the RU partnership
will assist the state of Virginia by providing graduate
level coursework in TBI to interested professionals and
graduate students who will be expected to work in that
state and build resources for TBI in their communities.
