Promote the advancement of the medical and clinical science research concerning individuals impacted by domestic violence – focusing on repeated subconcussions/traumatic brain injury (TBI) and their related health consequences such as chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) and other progressive neurodegenerative diseases.
Encourage and support medical institutions in developing research and clinical care programs to facilitate early diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of those impacted by DV-subconcussions/TBI and its related health consequences such CTE and other progressive neurodegenerative diseases.
Educate and train first responders, the public, health and service providers, the DV population, media, and other stakeholders on the public health pandemic of DV-subconcussions/CTE/TBI and what they can do to help end it.
Build an effective, trusted and sustainable non-profit organization capable of achieving its mission and realizing its vision.
Official 2023 launch of Pánfila Domestic Violence HOPE Foundation with release of the documentary This Hits Home.
Launch the Pánfila Domestic Violence HOPE Foundation Brain Donation Initiative, in affiliation (but not exclusive of collaborating with other brain bank programs) with Boston University Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) Center. Together we will encourage donation of brains from impacted individuals to help scientists and clinicians establish the relationship between domestic violence, subconcussions/TBI, CTE, and other neurodegenerative diseases and develop treatments.
Launch the Pánfila Domestic Violence HOPE Foundation Healing the Brain Initiative to support and advocate for research that will elucidate the pathogenesis of the brain injury, the pathological and neurological consequences, and the targets for new treatments that will disrupt disease progression and facilitate recovery.
Collaborate with global, national, federal, state, and/or local partners to develop, launch, and monitor the Pánfila DV-subconcussions/TBI/CTE Education Awareness Campaign to create awareness about DV-subconcussions/TBI and their consequences such as CTE and other progressive neurodegenerative diseases.
Through Pánfila, develop best strength-based and trauma and culturally-informed practices for individuals, families, schools, communities, faith organizations, social media platforms, and others to promote and strengthen building deep, empathetic, and respectful conversations about the public health hazards of domestic violence, and provide help, healing, and support to those suffering from DV-TBI and its related progressive neurodegenerative diseases, specifically, CTE.
Create and promote medical science advisories and best-practice models for addressing DV-/TBI/CTE cases in medical and mental-health settings, healthcare, emergency rooms, social services, psychiatric, educational, counseling, and other settings.
