VA Brain Trust addresses mTBI and PTSD

 

Brain Trust:

Pathways to InnoVAtion

 

 

    #VABrainTrust

    May 17– 18, 2017 | Boston, MA, USA

    The consequences of brain injury can be overwhelming.

     

    Veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI) face a challenging road back to normalcy. To address this, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is calling for a renewed focus on “brain health” and engaging industry leaders in a forward-thinking dialogue. 

     

    As an invited partner in the second annual “Brain Trust: Pathways to InnoVAtion” event, Philips brings strength in connected health technologies and a long-standing partnership with the U.S. Military and the VA. But we understand no single organization can develop the solutions and services needed to protect the independence and health of Veterans. Only a commitment to open innovation and collaboration across the healthcare landscape will help us find solutions to the challenges facing Veterans and the nation’s healthcare system.

     

    It must be a united effort. And Philips is proud to be part of the team.

     

    Read on to learn more about this event – and the opportunities to improve the lives of patients with PTSD and mTBI.
