The term “Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)” was largely unknown until recently, when veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan began returning home with head injuries that disrupted brain function. This community conversation will focus on those who’ve experienced TBI and have learned not only to live with it, but to thrive. Join us for an inspirational evening of stories.

Peters Township Public Library (616 E McMurray Rd, McMurray, PA 15317). According to a recent Pew Research Center poll, two-thirds of our nation’s veterans think the wars we’ve fought since September 11, 2001 weren’t worth the cost of fighting them. We’ll convene a panel of young post-9/11 veterans to hear what they have to say, pro and con. The event is open to the public and all are welcome to attend.
