Service Dogs: Providing Assistance to Returning Veterans

11/09/2012

In this special edition podcast we celebrate Veterans' Day. When our soldiers come home with physical injuries their medical needs are obvious and physicians are available to provide help. But far too often our soldiers come home with invisible injuries that are as debilitating and too often go untreated. Two of the most common invisible injuries are Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). An innovative treatment for PTSD and TBI is underway by a special group of dog trainers who formed a non-profit in 2011 called “This Able Veteran.” In this podcast we hear from their President and founder, Behesha Doan.
