(All grant work concluded February 11, 2014.)
In 2010, the Department of Defense awarded a grant to the Vice Provost for Health of Grand Valley State University. The purpose of this funding was to conduct a research project addressing the needs of wounded warriors sustaining a traumatic brain injury with or without post-traumatic stress disorder. Comprehensive, evidence-based courses, relevant to the unique military needs, were created to educate civilian health care professionals with a high priority on interprofessional rehabilitation services for wounded warriors and their families.
Sponsors of the Midwest Traumatic Injury Rehabilitation Center Study
The research project was conducted by Grand Valley State University and Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital and was made possible by a grant awarded and administered by the U.S. Army Medical Research & Materiel Command (USAMRMC) and the Telemedicine & Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC), at Fort Detrick, MD, under Contract Number: W81XWH-10-1-0607 and W81XWH-11-2-0146
