- Resource information for the TBI community; and
- Research identifying systemic issues affecting the Illinois TBI community.
TBI Advisory Council
The TBI Project convenes a special TBI Advisory Council, composed of individuals with TBI, family members and service providers, that helps the Project meet its goals and provides feedback on the Project's initiatives. The Council meets quarterly.
