Colorado State University students in the graduate-level Occupational Therapy Program, along with Dr. Pat Sample and instructor Julie Silver Seidle, collaborated with MINDSOURCE during the fall 2017 semester to study and make recommendations on two issues:

  1. Increased Traumatic Brain Injury Trust Fund revenue
  2. Examining gaps and other state approaches for serving individuals with non-traumatic brain injuries.

Final reports and poster sessions took place on Monday, Dec. 11th in Fort Collins. The findings will help shape the Trust Fund Board’s strategic planning and activities in 2018 and beyond.
