Ronald Reagan Building, Washington, D.C.
The second annual Cohen Veterans Care Summit will focus on advancements in bioscience, clinical treatment, and precision medicine, and will highlight opportunities for advancing the PTSD and TBI research roadmap through public-private partnerships. World-renowned brain health experts will share the state-of-the-art in biomarkers, diagnostics, translational models, genetics, biosensors and mobile health for PTSD and TBI. Top-level clinicians will share expertise and best practices around caring for veterans and military families.
By joining forces with partners from all sectors, we can Spark a Care Revolution for veterans, service members and all individuals affected by PTSD & TBI.
The mission of this year’s Summit is to convene an interactive forum to address priorities for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Suicidality and other Trauma-related Brain Disorders, and define a roadmap for progress. This Summit will bring together leadership from the private and public sector to advance the Veterans Brain Health research agenda and clinical care delivery model.
Our forum will consist of a Public Event, Igniting the Spark, with attendees including veterans and their families followed by an invitation-only Stakeholder Event, Spark a Care Revolution, that will convene more than 350 thought leaders from academia, industry, government and the non-profit sector. In an effort to stimulate discussion and promote collaboration, Day 2 of the Stakeholder Event will offer 3 different tracks for stakeholders to attend: policy, bioscience & clinical care.
The public event will explore the full spectrum of challenges that veterans and families face in the wake of physical and emotional brain trauma. Global leaders in brain research and care will provide the State of Affairs” in Brain Health – what we’ve accomplished, where we need to go and how we are going to get there.
