Lee Ritterband and Michelle Hilgart present to Virginia Commonwealth Neurotrauma Initiative (CNI) Advisory Board

September 16, 2011

The CNI Trust Fund, administered by a governor-appointed Advisory Board, funds Virginia-based organizations and researchers to address the needs of people with acquired neurotrauma. The CNI Board, in 2009, funded a three year BHT project to develop and test the feasibility of an Internet Intervention for adults with Spinal Cord Injury to prevent pressure ulcers and promote healthy skin behaviors.  The project, now in its third year, has benefited from a strong partnership with Woodrow Wilson Rehabilitation Clinic (WWRC), and an enthusiastic and engaged group of community members with SCI who have informed program content and development. BHT is gearing up to launch the randomized controlled trial at WWRC in early 2012.
