TBI and Epilepsy
Studies show that 19.5% of U.S. military personnel returning from Iraq and Afghanistan have reported possible Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI). TBI has now been identified as a “signature injury of the global war on terror”. The long-term effects of head injuries create a heightened risk of post-traumatic conditions, including epilepsy. The incidence of Post Traumatic Epilepsy in active duty soldiers diagnosed with TBI is as high as 53%. This awareness campaign is a systematic approach to advocating, and educating Veterans and their families, healthcare providers, and veteran serving agencies about the correlations between TBI & Epilepsy.
