LEADING INNOVATION IN VETERANS HEALTH RESEARCH
Millions of active duty service members and Veterans made a commitment to serve and protect our nation. Military operations have resulted in physical and behavioral repercussions for an alarming number of these men and women and their families. Current approaches to care do not answer or satisfy all of the health needs of those affected by the consequences of combat. While research aggressively continues, more is needed to accelerate our efforts to meet those evolving challenges, including the effects of traumatic brain injury and post traumatic stress.
The Brain at War provides insights into the most recent research and innovations with the hope that they will catalyze decades of discovery and scientific advancement focused on the healthy brain and mind. As hundreds of thousands of men and women return from service, the United States faces a moral imperative to meet the needs of a skilled, youthful generation of Americans who may be vulnerable to the long-term consequences of combat duty. The decisions we make today will reverberate in the lives of American Veterans, their families and the nation at large.
NCIRE’s sixth annual The Brain at War conference convenes a diverse and dedicated gathering of physicians, scientists, representatives from the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs, academia, policy makers, community leaders, students, and Veterans for a series of intensive discussions and presentations providing new and exciting thinking and approaches to health care innovation.
Advancing the health and well-being of our service members, Veterans and their families is all of our responsibility, and we look forward to sharing this with you at The Brain at War.
Please join us for the nation’s leading conference on The Brain at War.
