National Association of State Head Injury Administers and TeachAids Unite to Promote Concussion Education
TeachAids is proud to announce a new partnership with the National Association of State Head Injury Association (NASHIA). NASHIA is a nonprofit, a national trade association for state programs that support individuals living with brain injury, implement and administer public programs that support individuals with brain injury, and their families. Members represent a variety of State agencies, including Public Health, Vocational Rehabilitation, Mental Health, Medicaid, Human Services, and Education, as well as other professionals, service providers, researchers, and individuals with brain injury themselves. Since 1990, NASHIA has been the source of information and education for State employees and their partners, and their collective voice on federal policies affecting service delivery for individuals with brain injury, and their families. NASHIA provides technical assistance and educational opportunities through a national conference, webinars, resources and materials.
“We are excited to partner with TeachAids to provide new free resources to our members and the brain injury community at large. One example of a TeachAids tool is the interactive Concussion Story Wall in which 750 people share 4,000 segments of their personal concussion journey,” states Rebeccah Wolfkiel, NASHIA Executive Director. “Our state programs can refer constituents to these supportive tools to augment their existing practices. State Advisory Councils will also benefit from the free resources as Council members are often leaders among the brain injury community in each state, and are made up of individuals living with brain injury, their families and the diverse professionals supporting them. State brain injury programs are creative by nature and I am excited to see the many ways in which the programs leverage these impactful free tools.”
John D. Corrigan, Ph.D., Advisor to NASHIA and Medical Advisor for CrashCourse, remarked, “I am inspired to see these two leading organizations dedicate significant efforts to collaborate towards the advancement and knowledge of brain health. Working together, NASHIA and CrashCourse by TeachAids have tremendous opportunity and potential to benefit millions of people in the United States and beyond.”
“This is an exciting collaboration and a great opportunity to reach state governments doing meaningful and impactful work. NASHIA has a vast reach, and we commend their efforts to distribute the CrashCourse products throughout their network of national associations and TBI stakeholders across the country.” adds Dr. Piya Sorcar, CEO and Founder of TeachAids.
The CrashCourse curriculum will be available nationwide starting today via the NASHIA website and additional NASHIA distributions.
