VA Brain Trust Summit

The Department of Veterans Affairs convened leaders in brain health to advance solutions for mTBI and PTSD at the Brain Trust Summit held on April 20, 2016 at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. At the event, VA Secretary Bob McDonald, three-time Olympic gold medalist swimmer Nancy Hogshead-Makar, and former Oakland Raiders linebacker and Super Bowl Champion Phil Villapiano all pledged to donate their brains to the VA-BU-CLF Brain Bank. The pledges were made alongside Concussion Legacy Foundation co-founder and president Chris Nowinski.
