Mobile health (mHealth) technology is changing the nature of healthcare delivery and has shown promise for improving the health, function, and well-being of individuals with TBI. Despite its potential, there are still many challenges to putting what is known about mHealth technology after TBI into practice.

Join this Mitchell Rosenthal Memorial Research webinar as Shannon Juengst and Amanda Rabinowitz describe the current state of the science on mHealth technology to support individuals with TBI, focusing on five themes that reveal the promise and work yet to be done for implementing mHealth technology into practice. 

Learning Objectives

  • List at least three specific ways mHealth can support adults with TBI.
  • Be able to name at least three challenges when using mHealth post-TBI.
  • Have a better understanding of important factors to consider before recommending/using mHealth technology post-TBI.

Includes 1 ACBIS CEU.

Speaker Bios:

Shannon Juengst, Ph.D., CRC is a Clinical Investigator at TIRR Memorial Hermann, a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor, and an Adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation at UT Health Sciences Center in Houston and the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. Her work focuses on developing evidence-based measurement and interventions for behavioral and emotional outcomes after traumatic brain injury (TBI), applying innovative telehealth methods to improve long-term symptom monitoring, and investigating biopsychosocial relationships among individuals with TBI and their care partners. She has 20 years of experience in research, ranging from coordinating intervention trials in traumatic brain injury and stroke in both inpatient rehabilitation and community-based settings to being a principal investigator on community-based and interventions studies for adults with acquired brain injuries and their care partners. Dr. Juengst is recognized as a leader in the field, being awarded the Deborah L. Wilkerson Early Career Research Award in 2020 and the Joshua B. Cantor Award in 2021 by the American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine, a leading professional organization in the field of rehabilitation. She has published nearly 90 peer-reviewed manuscripts and has been the recipient of funding from NIDILRR, NIH, and numerous foundations.

Amanda Rabinowitz, Ph.D., is an Institute Scientist at Moss Rehabilitation Research Institute (MRRI), and an Assistant Professor of Rehabilitation Medicine at Sydney Kimmel Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University. She directs the Brain Injury Neuropsychology Laboratory at MRRI, which studies chronic brain injury outcomes across the spectrum of TBI severity. In particular, her work focuses on the psychosocial factors that confer resilience after brain injury, with an interest in self-regulation as a key mechanism. A number of Dr. Rabinowitz’s projects leverage mobile technology to augment brain injury assessment and intervention. She works with local and national collaborators on studies of long term brain injury outcomes, including neuroimaging studies to elucidate neuropathological substrates of chronic and neurodegenetitive effects of brain injury, and large epidemiological studies of participation in contact sports as a risk factor for cognitive and emotional dysfunction later in life.
