Description: Please join us for this four session mini-series on TBI. VA's research related to traumatic brain injury (TBI) is wide-ranging. Among its goals: shedding light on the brain changes in TBI; improving screening methods and refining tools for diagnosing the condition; developing drugs to treat brain injury or limit its severity when it first occurs; designing improved methods for assessing treatment effectiveness; helping Veterans with TBI to reintegrate into their communities; and learning the best ways to help family members cope and provide support. This four part series presented by distinguished VA scientists offers updates on diagnosis and management of TBI and its comorbidities including PTSD.
