TRACTS: VA Research explores unique issues of Veterans with both TBI and PTSD
VA Researchers of the Translational Research Center for TBI and Stress Disorders or "TRACTS" (VA Rehabilitation Research and Development TBI Center of Excellence) based at the VA Boston Healthcare System are examining the links between mild traumatic brain injury and posttraumatic stress disorder that occur conjointly in Veterans returning from deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan. The hope is to get a better evidence-based treatment for this type of Veteran population. For more information, go to research.va.gov.
