Beechwood NeuroRehab Executive Director Dr. Drew Nagele will present at Capitol Hill Brain Injury Awareness Day on Tuesday, March 20. The theme for this year’s Capitol Hill Brain Injury Awareness Day is “Looking Ahead: Opportunities and Challenges in Brain Injury” focusing on rehabilitation and community services. Nagele will discuss research work in Juvenile Justice conducted by BIA of PA at the Congressional Briefing Panel.
A research study co-authored by Nagele titled “The Under-Identification of Brain Injuries and the Relationship with Juvenile (and Eventually Adult) Criminal Justice” was recently published in the Brain Injury Professional. The outcome is the result of work being done at Beechwood, as well as policy work being done by the National Collaborative on Children’s Brain Injury (NCCBI). You can read the full article here.
