Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE) Director Capt. Mike Colston appeared before a Senate Armed Services subcommittee last week to testify on advancements in posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI) research. More than a quarter of service members were treated last year for these high-profile injuries.
Also testifying were Capt. Walter Greenhalgh, director of the National Intrepid Center of Excellence in Bethesda, Maryland, and Dr. Amy Street, deputy director of Women’s Health Services Division of the National Center for PTSD at the Department of Veterans Affairs.
