Had an amazing day at the New York State PABI Plan meeting/reception/dinner at Columbia University Medical Center in NYC on Jan. 8, 2013 with the Sarah Jane Brain Foundation! Met some amazing people. A big thank you to Paula Abdul & Patrick Kennedy who received the SJBF Lifetime Achievement for participating in our statewide meeting to organize the implementation of the National Pediatric Acquired Brain Injury Plan (PABI Plan) in New York State on January 8, 2013.
It was a full-day planning conference/reception/dinner on January 8, 2013, at Columbia University Medical Center in Manhattan. The meeting was about organizing the National Pediatric Acquired Brain Injury Plan (PABI Plan) and the $2.9 Billion, seven-year federal initiative in New York State. The PABI Plan’s mission is to develop a seamless, standardized, evidence-based system of care for the millions of American youth and their families suffering from the leading cause of death and disability from birth to 25 years of age, acquired brain injury.
The Sarah Jane Brain Foundation (SJBF) is a world-wide non-profit organization with a mission to change the world for the millions of families who have a child or young adult suffering from an acquired brain injury by advancing neuroscience and implementing the PABI Plan.
