About Paralyzed Veterans of America:
Paralyzed Veterans of America is the only congressionally chartered veterans service organization dedicated solely for the benefit and representation of veterans with spinal cord injury or disease. For nearly 70 years, we have ensured that veterans have received the benefits earned through their service to our nation; monitored their care in VA spinal cord injury units; and funded research and education in the search for a cure and improved care for individuals with paralysis.
As a partner for life, Paralyzed Veterans also develops training and career services, works to ensure accessibility in public buildings and spaces, provides health and rehabilitation opportunities through sports and recreation and advocates for veterans and all people with disabilities. With more than 70 offices and 34 chapters, Paralyzed Veterans serves veterans, their families and their caregivers in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. (www.pva.org)

The VA is reaching out to Veterans, friends and family members regarding Traumatic Brain Injury or TBI.

What is TBI? Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) may happen from a blow or jolt to the head or an object penetrating the brain. When the brain is injured, the person can experience a change in consciousness that can range from becoming disoriented and confused to slipping into a coma. The person might also have a loss of memory for the time immediately before or after the event that caused the injury.  Not all injuries to the head result in a TBI. Read More Here

Simplify Your Healthcare: VLER Health Exchange

Many Veterans receive a portion of their care from non-VA health care providers. Sharing certain parts of your Electronic Health Record (EHR) will help reduce the need for you or your family to carry records between health care providers. This also allows your non-VA health care provider to make more informed decisions about your care. In an emergency, immediate access to additional health care information could save your life. Electronic sharing of your EHR makes it easier to share your current medications with your doctors and helps eliminate unnecessary medical tests.

Participation is entirely free and voluntary. Deciding not to participate will not affect your VA Health benefits or your relationship with your doctor and/or the VA Health Care System. To learn more about CONNECT YOUR DOCS and sharing your health care records, please visit www.va.gov/VLER
