Jonathan D. Lichtenstein, PsyD, MBA, director of neuropsychological services at Dartmouth Health’s Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, has been elected the next president of the board of directors for the Brain Injury Association of New Hampshire (BIANH). Lichtenstein has been on BIANH’s board since 2019.
“As president of BIANH, my goal is to be a good steward for this organization that already does such incredible work,” Lichtenstein said. “I’m deeply honored to be chosen to lead the board and look forward to accomplishing a lot with the entire BIANH team during my term.”
Lichtenstein holds assistant professorships in psychiatry, pediatrics, and at The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy & Clinical Practice at Dartmouth’s Geisel School of Medicine. His priorities during his term include improving pediatric brain injury systems, supporting families and caregivers, and boosting what BIANH is able to offer to the New Hampshire brain injury community, in addition to supporting staff and other members of the board, obtaining strategic funding, and building community partnerships.
“BIANH has been privileged to have had a close working relationship with Dr. Lichtenstein for many years,” said Steve Wade, executive director of BIANH. “We are extremely fortunate to have him in this new role as board president of BIANH.”
BIANH is the only statewide organization in New Hampshire dedicated to brain injury and stroke support, prevention, education, and advocacy for survivors and caregivers. Each year, the association helps over 1,000 Granite Staters who have sustained numerous forms of acquired brain injuries.
