Since 2000, more than 400,000 military Veterans have been diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Dr. Sidney Hinds, MD, FAAN, and Dr. Rebecca Van Horn, a psychiatrist and U.S. Army Reservist.

Operation Brain Health is part of the Concussion Legacy Foundation’s Project Enlist, which is serving as a catalyst for research on military Veterans with TBI, Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) by rapidly increasing the number of Veteran brains donated to brain banks for study. Operation Brain Health is providing a service to Veterans through positive brain health messaging to help support the heroes who courageously fight for our nation.
