Center for Brain Health

Be COVID Safe

WE SPECIALIZE IN CARING FOR MILITARY VETERANS OF ANY DISCHARGE STATUS. 

Our mission is to aid in the healing, recovery and preventive treatment of veterans by treating the whole veteran and providing the most comprehensive and multidisciplinary care. We address mild to moderate Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI), post-traumatic stress and other physical and psychological health concerns.  

OUR STORY

In 2019, members of our team at Tulane University, in partnership with the Gary Sinise Foundation Avalon Network, 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, launched 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. 

OUR SERVICES

Diagnostic Evaluation

During a 3-day evaluation at Tulane Medical Center, veterans meet our care team and participate in one-on-one evaluations with specialists. At the conclusion, patients are given an individualized treatment plan that can be administered by the veteran’s care team or through Tulane’s Intensive Outpatient Treatment program.

Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP) 

Veterans returning to Tulane for treatment spend three weeks in various IOP programs, including: 

• Behavioral Health

• Speech and Language

• Physical Therapy

• Neurology

• Pharmacology

• Case Management

• Integrative Therapy

• Art Therapy

• Veteran Relations
