Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) today announced a total of $250,000 to West Virginia University from the Administration for Community Living to improve access to rehabilitation and other services for individuals with Traumatic Brain Injuries and their families with an emphasis on early diagnosis and intervention, and access to medial home and system of care.
“Time and time again, West Virginia University demonstrates why they are recognized as one of the leading institutions in the country,” Senator Manchin said. “This grant will help provide WVU’s Traumatic Brain Injury Program with the necessary resources to continue carrying out the kind of advanced treatment that leads to lifesaving medical discoveries.
