Lincoln's Promise: Congress, Veterans, and Traumatic Brain Injury
The Hastings Center
Perhaps we were naïve. Our plan was relatively simple: we would chart the legislative evolution of programs for veterans with traumatic brain injuries (TBI) to identify policy gaps for this underserved and vulnerable population. With recent media attention highlighting the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) shortfalls for TBI – the “signature injury” of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan – we hoped to learn whether barriers to care stemmed from a lack of congressional will or operational problems at the VA.
