EValuation Of Longitudinal outcomes in mild TBI Active-Duty Military and Veterans - Supplement

We propose to characterize four cohorts of individuals who have been prospectively followed since the point of concussion injury in combat to dramatically increase what is known about the long-term implications of head injury among people who have served in the military.  We seek at this time to expand the EVOLVE study to include brain donation and autopsy consent in these service members. Sadly, the death rate in this study is currently sitting at just over 1:100 and the suicide rate is 833/100,000 in stark contrast to the CDC reported suicide rate in the US population at large of 18-20/100,000.
