WHAT IS OPERATION BOOTSTRAP?

Operation Bootstrap is the inaugural sponsor support program for the Center for Brain Health.

Our mission — to aid in the healing, recovery and preventive treatment of veterans — is funded by donors who understand the importance of honoring and caring for our veterans. All of our services are provided free of charge to veterans, on behalf of our sponsors.

Please note: Donations of any size can be earmarked for specific programs or added to the Center for Brain Health’s general fund.

 

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.

3-DAY ASSESSMENT SPONSOR: $6,500

 

INTENSIVE OUTPATIENT TREATMENT (IOP)

Intensive outpatient care provides detailed diagnostic and treatment services that integrates conventional medicine with complementary and alternative medicine. Patients and families receive extensive education about mTBI and psychological health conditions designed to enhance self-management of symptoms aimed at improving quality of life.

CANINE COMPANION FUND

canine companions

Evidence suggests that ongoing animal-assisted therapy can benefit veterans in need by improving their emotional, mental, and physical well-being. We have partnered with U.S. Veterans Service Dogs, a Louisiana-based organization, to train canine companions that will be available on-site at the Center for Brain Health for veteran assistance and therapy. Through this fund, we can support the training, day-to-day care and health of our canine companions.

$25,000 per clinic Canine Companion (annual)
$55,000 per Veteran Canine Companion

Donations fund a service dog for veterans who have graduated from the Center for Brain Health program.

 

The Center for Brain Health program is part of the Tulane University Center for Sport's Clinical Services operation.
