What is the Hawaii Neurotrauma Registry?

ValGreg-WebThe Hawaii Neurotrauma Registry is a voluntary list of Hawaii residents with neurotrauma injury (TBI: Traumatic Brain Injury, Spinal Cord Injury or Stroke). Funded by the Department of Health, the state of Hawaii currently has no information about how many people are living with neurotrauma injury and what their needs are.

We want to understand the needs of Hawai’i residents of all ages who have had a stroke, traumatic brain injury or concussion, and/or spinal cord injury once they leave the hospital or care facility. This information will help us know what services are most required post-discharge.

In the long term, a registry may lead to:

  • Better support services
  • Changes in legislation
  • New research on neurotrauma

Additionally, any resident of Hawaii of any age who has had a traumatic brain injury or concussion, stroke, or spinal cord injury, may receive information and referral help.  Contact us


Know someone with a head or spinal cord injury or had a stroke? Encourage him/her to join the registry.
