TBI Educators—TBICoE's Regional Education Coordinators

What is a Regional Education Coordinator?

TBICoE supports a multi-center network of military treatment facilities and Department of Veterans Affairs medical centers with TBI education and research initiatives. A regional education coordinator (REC) is a TBI educator who helps promote the TBICoE mission by providing educational materials and training on awareness, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and management of TBI-related issues. REC outreach efforts provide education and training tools to health care providers, military leadership, service members, veterans, families, and civilian communities.

In many regions, the REC is embedded in a TBI Specialty Care Clinic, a VA Polytrauma Center or an Intrepid Spirit Clinic and works collaboratively by providing educational opportunities for the multi-disciplinary team involved in the care of service members and veterans with TBI. If you are a medical provider and interested in working with an REC to receive training on any of the TBI clinical tools available, email us by clicking the button below to get connected.

What does an REC do?

  • Assure that providers are aware of and understand new clinical care standards of practice for TBI
  • Provide education programs and latest TBI information to service members, veterans, families and caregivers
  • Conduct TBI outreach across the MHS and VA through presentations, training, briefs, information booths, and expo fairs
  • Promote TBICoE clinical tools and educational resources
  • Educate leaders about the impact of TBI on unit performance

How do I find an REC?

RECs are assigned to specific regions throughout the United States and Germany. TBICoE has divided the United States into catchment areas with an assigned regional education coordinator. To be connected with the REC nearest you and the resources available, email us.
