We're committed to helping residents with physical disabilities, but we believe we can make an even greater impact by working with the right community partners to offer more programs and services.
That's why we extend our reach by supporting community health initiatives and local organizations that work to improve the care and quality of life for people with physical disabilities. Our recent support included funding for prevention, education outreach and research programs offered by Jacksonville's non-profit hospitals. Plus we're engaged with our partners to develop new programs for our community.
Brain Injury Coalition for Kids
Together with Shands Jacksonville, we're developing an unparalleled database to gather data on the treatment and outcomes of children's traumatic injuries. This pool of information will help physicians and therapists enhance their knowledge of post-injury issues, design more effective treatments and formulate strategies and programs to prevent acute injuries. Once completed, the database will be the only long-term, ongoing pediatric trauma database of its kind in the U.S.
Brooks' School Re-entry program strives to be a national leader in providing school transition services for children with disabilities who have been treated at Brooks. Our School Re-entry Coordinator will focus on providing exceptional service to you and your child while educating you about the process and advocating for what is best for your child.
Brooks runs and aids a variety of support groups to assist current and former patients as they strive to regain their ability to lead successful, independent lives. We currently maintain relationships with the ALS Support Group, Gateway Stroke Club, Spinal Chord Support Group of Jacksonville, Peripheral Neuropathy Support Group, and the Jacksonville Brain Injury Support Group, in addition to Brooks Rehabilitation Hospital's Inpatient Support Groups.
