Brain Health Awareness For Veterans
Veterans may be at a higher risk for dementia based on their military experiences. A traumatic brain injury (TBI), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression or being a Prisoner of War can all increase the risk of developing dementia. The risk of dementia also increases as we age.
