About

The Cohen Veterans Care Summit is the pre-eminent convening event for private and public sector leadership to gather and advance the Veterans Brain Health research agenda and clinical care delivery model.

The Summit is jointly hosted by Cohen Veterans Bioscience and Cohen Veterans Network, both leading national non-profit organizations funded by financier-philanthropist Steven A. Cohen to advance the state of Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) & Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) care today and tomorrow.

The inaugural meeting in 2016 focused on advancements in bioscience and precision medicine, highlighting opportunities for advancing the PTSD & TBI research roadmap through public-private partnerships.  World-class brain health experts shared the state-of-the-art in biomarkers, diagnostics, translational models, genetics, biosensors and mobile health for PTSD and TBI.  Experts also discussed how research advancements may be rapidly translated to best-in-class care delivery.

Participants in this invitation-only event included leaders from academia, Department of Defense, National Institutes of Health, Veterans Administration, foundations and industry.  The agenda included panel discussions, scientific presentations, and plenty of time for networking with peers to promote innovative collaborations.

By Joining Forces with partners from all sectors, we can accelerate the Veterans Mental Health agenda for Veterans, Service members and all individuals affected by PTS & TBI.
