March is Brain Injury Awareness Month
The Department of Defense has made significant strides, through the services, regarding the education and prevention of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and the delivery of health care to service members with TBI from the battlefield to duty station. The Defense Department and DCoE recognize the importance of learning more about brain injury and are working to improve research and understanding, and to ensure that resources get to the right audiences.
If you’re looking for more information or resources, trained health professionals are available at the DCoE Outreach Center 24/7 by phone, email or live chat. You can also e-mail concerns or questions to the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center (DVBIC) or call 800-870-9244.
DVBIC, a DCoE center, assists the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs in optimizing the care of service members and veterans who have sustained a TBI in deployed and non-deployed settings through state-of-the-art clinical care, innovative research, care coordination and educational programs, tools and resources.
