Overview

NASHIA’s State of the States in Head Injury Meeting, first held in 1990, has the distinction of being the only annual national conference designed to foster communication and professional development among State government brain injury program administrators. Each year, approximately 100 key State and federal government employees, consumers, Brain Injury Association of America chartered State affiliates, and other professionals responsible for administering an array of brain injury prevention, rehabilitation, community integration programs and services, assemble for this conference. The State of the States program offers plenary and workshop sessions on a variety of topics covering emerging federal and State issues and promising practices on service delivery, as well as opportunities for information sharing among participants.
