Traumatic Brain Injury Screenings Conducted at 20th Annual Homeless Stand Down in Pocatello

 

The Institute of Rural Health’s TBI Program conducted screenings for the first time at the 20th Annual Homeless Stand Down at Idaho State University in Pocatello on October 24th. More than 30 non-profit organizations hosted the event and over 300 volunteers helped make it possible for over 150 individuals.  One faculty member and nine students from the Counseling Department at ISU were trained prior to the event and administered TBI screenings to approximately 25 percent of attendees. We want to extend our gratitude to the counseling department for helping us successfully expand our TBI awareness efforts.
