"I am excited to share some of our plans for 2017. As I begin my second year as Chairman, my primary goal for 2017 is to expand knowledge of the Foundation’s mission to a larger community of people, especially those in the military.

I have always been in awe of the knowledge base emanating from this brain trust with respect to understanding neurologic disorders and brain damage as well as treatment and management of these disorders.
