Happy Holidays from all of us at Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE)!
It’s hard to believe it has been almost a year in January since I came onboard. As predicted there was a lot of “drinking from the fire hose” the first several months, but luckily I have found my sea legs. I can’t say that it hasn’t been challenging, but it certainly has been worth it.
In 2011 there has been a lot of positive change that has occurred within DCoE that will allow us to better serve our sailors, airmen, Marines, soldiers and those in military medicine.
Three of our six centers are now aligned under different agencies. Center for the Study of Traumatic Stress and Center for Deployment Psychology are now a part of the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, and National Intrepid Center of Excellence is under the National Naval Medical Center.
