Barrow Featured in AP Story on Brain Trauma, Domestic Violence

Barrow was featured in an Associated Press story about brain trauma in domestic violence victims, a population that the AP says has been overshadowed by football players and military veterans with brain injuries.

“This population is not unlike that of our athletes,” Dr. Javier Cardenas, director of the Barrow Concussion and Brain Injury Center, told the AP.

The center created a program that provides free treatment to homeless domestic violence survivors and recently published a study in the Journal of Neurotrauma looking at this underserved population.
