Researchers have made great progress during the past several years to understand and treat the physical and mental wounds suffered by combat Veterans, especially the hundreds of thousands who have fought in Iraq and Afghanistan. But many research and health care challenges remain.
At the Seventh Annual The Brain at War conference, held last fall, scientists, health care providers, military leaders, policy makers and Veterans from around the country discussed recent research and the urgency to quickly translate new knowledge into therapies for the growing number of Veterans who need care.
At the annual NCIRE-sponsored event, which is the leading national conference on the neurocognitive consequences of war, they examined a variety of topics, from post-traumatic stress (PTS) and the health needs of women Veterans to emerging technologies and recent advances in caring for wounded warriors.
