As traumatic brain injury (TBI) has become one of the signature injuries of recent conflicts, it is imperative that health care providers, both in the military and civilian community who treat our wounded warriors and veterans, have the most up-to-date diagnosis and treatment information. The DoE works with a collaborative network of leading experts to develop and enhance provider tools.

DCoE will host a live discussion on Twitter, also known as a twitterview, March 28, 1-2p.m. EDT specifically targeted at health care providers.

Deputy Director of TBI Ms. Katherine Helmick will answer questions regarding tools available for the diagnosis and treatment of our warriors who have sustained a TBI.

What is Twitter? Twitter is a popular social media site founded in 2006 that allows users to post short messages limited to 140 characters or less, commonly known by users as “tweets.”

What is a “twitterview”? A twitterview is a live discussion on Twitter that allows users to tweet in their question to a specific individual/organization during a specified time.

To get involved in the discussion, follow @DCoEpage on Twitter or use the hashtag #DCoE.
