Have you heard of the Virginia Brain Injury Council? Would you like to join a statewide advisory council to assist in making decisions that benefit survivors of brain injury in the state of Virginia?
The Virginia Brain Injury Council is comprised of consumers (i.e., survivors of brain injury and family members, caretakers, and representatives of survivors); licensed, registered, and certified healthcare professionals; service providers; individuals not affiliated with any brain injury program, state agency representatives; and other ad hoc advisory members.
The mission of the Council is to promote accessible, affordable, and appropriate services for Virginians with brain injury and their families by advising the lead state agency for brain injury, the Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services.
The Virginia Brain Injury Council is looking to fill 3 open positions. Interested applicants who meet one of the following requirements are encouraged to apply using this form: Nomination/Application Form VBIC
- Someone who is not an employee or current Board member of an organization or program that receives state general funds
- A survivor (person with lived experience of brain injury)
- A survivor, family member or caregiver of a person living with a traumatic brain injury
