Veterans Health Initiative Gets $1.57M Boost

Traumatic brain injury, the “signature” injury of soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, is often invisible on the exterior. But the  damage of combat blast forces to memory, attention, decision-making and motor skills can devastate lives.  Now, armed with a new  $1.57 million Department of Defense grant, USF is working with James A. Haley VA Hospital on research  that may  lead to better treatments and readjustment skills for veterans suffering from TBI.
