For years, the main mission for the team behind UCLA's Operation Mend in Los Angeles, Calif. was to heal the visible wounds of the servicemen and women coming home from the wars of Iraq and Afghanistan. Now, veterans suffering from mild traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress will also be served under Operation Mend as part of an expanded program that will include UCLA's experts in neurology, neurosurgery, psychiatry and integrative. The expanded program will focus on post-9/11 veterans and their families and is now part of a new national health system called Warrior Care Network, funded in part by the Wounded Warrior Project. For more information, visit the Operation Mend website or call UCLA Operation Mend at 310-267-2251.
