Interviews & Features

Over the years, we have had the good fortune of having our work featured in various media outlets. We are always excited to share what we have accomplished with our patients and in our research in an effort to help educate others about brain injury and make further contributions to the field.

Below you'll find a list of interviews and media appearances and, if available, links to those features. If you are a media outlet and would like to set up an interview or seeking contributions to a piece about traumatic brain injury, please direct correspondence to Jenny Marwtiz at
