San Francisco Traumatic Brain Injury Network
The San Francisco Traumatic Brain Injury Network (SF TBI NET) is a collaborative project between the Pomeroy Recreation and Rehabilitation Center, the Department of Rehabilitation and St. Mary's Medical Center. The SF TBI Net began in January 2002 and serves adults with traumatic brain injuries and their families. Traumatic brain injury is defined as an injury that is sustained after birth from an external force to the brain, resulting in cognitive, psychological, neurological, and/or anatomical changes in the brain functions. Our primary goal is to empower adults with a TBI to utilize existing programs to return to the community and achieve optimal independence.
