About the Research Study

This study focuses on transitioning through menopause in women with TBI. The scarcity of knowledge about the menopause transition in women with TBI is an important problem because it affects all women who survive TBI prior to menopause, and health management issues are likely to shift substantially during this time, yet providers have little to no evidence to guide their treatment. Life stressors associated with menopause may already be high in women with TBI due to the direct and indirect effects of injury. Rehabilitation of Michigan's Robin Hanks, Ph.D., ABPP is serving as the principal investigator.
