Goals and objectives for the Neurotrauma Program Strategic Plan for fiscal years 2021-2023 were developed through Advisory Boards’ discussions and input from an online stakeholder meeting, held in May 2020.

- Goal 3: Expand survivors’, family members’, and caregivers’ connections to available resources in Hawaii.
- Goal 4: Use data to identify the needs and service gaps for survivors of neurotrauma and family members/caregivers.
