Center for Brain Health

Center for Brain Health

Veterans and professional athletes have a lot in common. Highly trained and driven by a devotion to the mission and to their team, they face many of the same physical and emotional challenges in the transition from professional career to private life. 

In 2019, members of our team at Tulane University, in partnership with The Avalon Fund, began the process of developing a veteran-focused program to address the unique medical needs of our members of the armed forces to create the Tulane University Center for Brain Health. Similar to the PACT Clinic’s work with professional athletes, this comprehensive, interdisciplinary care program, launching in Fall 2020, is designed to meet the specific needs of the veteran population and address conditions that impact them the most, including Traumatic Brain Injury, post-traumatic stress, depression and anxiety. 

In addition to clinical care, this program will foster targeted research in conditions that impact athletes and services members, including TBI, cardiovascular health and psychological health, backed by Tulane’s world-class research facilities and faculty.

Additional programs and services include:

  • Behavioral neurology
  • Physical therapy
  • Speech-language pathology
  • Neuropsychology
  • Behavioral health
  • Individual and group veterans relations
  • Integrative therapies
