Research on PTSD and TBI funded by DoD and VA in new initiative
Posted on Aug 23, 2013
The Department of Defense and the VA are funding more research on post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI), a recent VA announcement reveals. This consortia will spend over $107 million to research the diagnosis and treatment of PTSD and TBI.
"VA is proud to join with its partners in the federal government and the academic community to support the President's vision and invest in research that could lead to innovative, new treatments for TBI and PTSD," VA secretary Eric Shinseki stated. This consortium was created after President Obama issued an Executive Order demanding a National Action Plan for PTSD and TBI. This is an important step in the right direction, and the administration needs to keep PTSD and TBI at the forefront of their initiatives for the foreseeable future.
