Solving the Invisible Wounds of War

Brain injuries caused by improvised explosive devices (IED) and other military service-related causes are a significant problem for our active military and Veteran community. More than 410,000 Veterans have been diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury (TBI) since 2001. Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) – a disease most commonly associated with boxers and football players – is now being found in military Veterans. So what do you do to help prevent and treat the invisible wounds of war? If you’re the Concussion Legacy Foundation, you create a culture of brain donation. You mobilize the world’s greatest researchers whose experience studying athletes’ brains will help unlock discoveries in the military community. You partner with the family members of Veterans lost to the effects of TBI, CTE and PTSD. You encourage Veterans to take part in one more act of service to their country and their fellow Veterans.
