ONE MIND LAUNCHES ‘BRAINS NEED ANSWERS’ CAMPAIGN
Posted September 8, 2015 (Note: this campaign has ended)
SEATTLE, WA – September 8, 2015 – We all know someone who has experienced brain trauma or disease. Yet identifying and treating these conditions remains a challenge. In response, One Mind has launched its ‘Brains Need Answers’ campaign. This funding will support programs like One Mind’s PatientsLikeMe online community, where people living with invisible wounds like post-traumatic stress (PTS) and traumatic brain injury (TBI) can connect, learn, share with others, become better informed, and advocate more effectively for their own health and the health of those they love. Most importantly, because brain researchers helped determine the content for the sites, the patient-reported data will help researchers find answers about brain health.
Campaign funding will further One Mind’s coordination of global public-private partnerships and unite neuroscience researchers, industry, philanthropy, and government.
One Mind CEO, General Peter Chiarelli, U.S. Army (Retired), said “The One Mind ‘Brains Needs Answers’ campaign supports our work in creating a collaborative model for neuroscience research that will not only shorten the time required to find better diagnostics and treatments for PTS and TBI but also serve as a model for all of neuroscience.” #BrainsNeedAnswers
