Patricia Reyna, EdD, a Research Associate at CBIRT, is conducting a unique study documenting the lived experiences and needs of family caregivers of injured law enforcement officers and other first responders. This topic is of personal interest to Patricia. In 2009, Patricia’s husband, NC State Highway Patrol Master Trooper, Humberto Reyna, sustained a traumatic brain injury in the line of duty.
Family caregivers including spouses, partners, adult children, other family members, friends, and peers who provide any care including emotional and social supports to a law enforcement officer, fire fighter, or emergency medical worker with TBI/concussion and/or any other injury are eligible to participate.
