Assemblymember Gottfried’s office is organizing a hearing on brain injury for early October. The hearing is still in the beginning stages, but they are seeking providers, patients and families, researchers, advocates (including self-advocates), and any other interested parties to testify. The hearing will cover issues related to brain injury in general, but also should include a focus on the state’s Medicaid TBI waiver program and its transition into managed care.
If you are interested in speaking at the hearing, please contact Victoria Clingan, BIANYS Director of Engagement and Outreach at 518-459-7911 or [email protected]. Please include your name, address, phone number, and email address and a brief statement of your affiliation or relationship to brain injury. We will be submitting contact information of interested speakers to the Assemblymember’s office for invitations to the hearing.
