In this presentation, I outline the process for collaborating with an American Indian tribal community to implement community outreach and education on traumatic brain injury. I discuss the process for creating partnerships and connections with community organizations and groups to increase knowledge on signs and symptoms of traumatic brain injury (TBI), incidence of TBI in tribal communities, and access to community resources for living with TBI.
