Brain Trust:

Pathways to InnoVAtion

 

 

    #VABrainTrust

    April 20th – April 21st | Washington, DC, 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 to normalcy. To address this, The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is calling for a renewed focus on ‘brain health’ and engaging industry leaders in forward-thinking dialogue.

     

    As an invited partner in the inaugural ‘Brain Trust: Pathways to InnoVAtion’ event, Philips brings strength in connected health technologies and a long-standing, collaborative relationship with the U.S. Military and the VA. But we know no single organization can develop the solutions and services needed to protect the independence and health of Veterans.

     

    It must be a united effort.


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