Young children have one of the highest rates of traumatic brain injury (TBI) related emergency department visits compared to all age groups, which represents a large public health burden for the U.S. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) was directed by the Traumatic Brain Injury Reauthorization Act of 2014 to compile a Report to Congress on the Management of TBI in Children in conjunction with the National Institutes of Health. In 2016, the CDC National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) partnered with Brunet-García to assist with the Report design, collateral, and dissemination plan.

As someone who is still early in my career, I quickly learned the value professional organizations provide. After working at Brunet-García for a year and a half, I learned many of my coworkers share the same idea. Team members at our agency are deeply involved in organizations that provide professional development, volunteer, and networking opportunities. We all have our own specific reasons for being part of our respective organizations, but we share the same passion for being part of a group that supports our personal and professional growth.
