AFA Fireside Chat: Healthcare Disparities for Veterans

June 23 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm EDT

Episode 6: Healthcare Disparities for Veterans

Veterans may be at a higher risk for developing a dementia-related illness later in life, based on their military experiences. This episode will discuss factors that can increase a veteran’s risk for dementia, the impact of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and depression on brain health, potential impediments to diagnosis and care for veterans, and ways to breakdown these barriers.
