TBI in the Military & Veteran Communities
feat. Dr. James Kelly

And countless more veterans struggle for years and even decades in the aftermath of traumatic brain injury. Join neurologist Dr. James Kelly, founding director of the Department of Defense’s National Intrepid Center of Excellence (2009-2015) and current executive director of the Marcus Institute for Brain Health at the University of Colorado’s Anschutz Health and Wellness Center, in a discussion about the invisible wounds associated with our nation’s service members and veterans.
