Did you know? Children's registry is a unique resource for tracking and understanding pediatric brain injury
Children's maintains a data registry of more than 12,000 young patients who have sustained traumatic brain and head injuries. Not only does this information help track the symptoms, treatment plans and progress of brain-injured children—it also offers essential insight into how these injuries can be prevented in the future. For more information about the registry, contact Children’s Brain Injury Center.
