Study Participants Needed

You are being invited to participate in a brief research study being conducted by a clinical psychology doctoral student (PsyD) from Loyola University Maryland.

We are looking to better understand the unique experience of burden that many spousal caregivers face following TBI, so that caregivers at greatest risk can be more quickly and easily identified, and may begin to receive appropriate referrals and much-needed support.

Any questions pertaining to this research study may be addressed to the Principal Investigator, Paige Victorine, M.S., ([email protected]) or her research advisor, Dr. Christopher Higginson ([email protected]). *note that ABIN is not the facilitator of this study, we are only assisting in distribution of information.

AN UPDATE ON ABIN OPERATIONS as of 4/1/20


At this point, ABIN is still processing TABI Mini-grants and assisting in advocacy for those affected by traumatic brain injury.
 
As the COVID-19 situation evolves we have made the decision to close access to the public. This is for the safety of our staff as well as our consumers.
 
We will be available via phone and e-mail to assist community members with grant applications and other needs.
 
We are asking that if you have to send anything grant related, please use the contact form on the website or our new grants e-mail [email protected] Since we are not meeting consumers in person, here is a link that has an application that can be filled out online http://dhss.alaska.gov/dsds/Pages/tabi/default.aspx

If you have to leave message, rest assured that we will do our best to return it ASAP. These are unusual times we are all experiencing so please allow us some time to respond.
 
Thank you and stay well.
