One Mind for Research salutes the White House’s Brain Initiative announced today by President Obama. Brain diseases and injuries impose an immense social and economic burden on our country and this initiative is an important first step in funding promising new technologies that can lead to a better understanding of the brain.

ONE MIND for Research was presented a gift of $50,000 towards the organization, whose goal is to make advancements in brain injury and related diseases through collaboration and information sharing. The check was presented by Drayton McLane Jr., Chairman and CEO of MAT.

I recently had the pleasure to meet the executive team for One Mind for Research at Swissnex, the Swiss Consulate of Boston. In this interview with the CEO General Pete Chiarelli (Ret.) we discuss some of the next steps for this crucial organization.
Chiarelli, the former Army vice chief of staff, is the nation’s most outspoken and high-profile champion for soldiers suffering from post-traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury, and though others in uniform have picked up his push to curb suicides in the ranks, he remains relentless on that front, even in retirement.
