Guest Post - G.I. Brain Health

My name is Chris Porter and I am a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom.  I saw first-hand with the Army’s 3rd Infantry Division how war can affect our military personnel, specifically traumatic brain injuries from improvised explosive devices and other concussive events.  I now work for a company called Quincy Bioscience that addresses cognitive issues such as memory loss, focus, and concentration.

The Department of Defense reports that 244,217 of America’s veterans have been diagnosed with traumatic brain injuries since 2000.  Among the many cognitive issues a traumatic brain injury can bring about, perhaps none is as frustrating as memory loss.  Prevagen, an all-natural solution for memory, has shown to help improve brain function in people with memory complaints.

To further assist our military, Quincy Bioscience recently announced the launch of a new initiative, GI Brain Health, to support military veterans that have suffered traumatic brain injuries.  The free memory test provides a welcome resource to those military veterans who suffer from memory loss due to traumatic brain injuries. By taking a brief 25 question monthly survey, veterans will now be able to see how their memory is improving over time.

We originally offered a free bottle of Prevagen for all veterans that complete the free online test as a promotion for Military Appreciation Month in May.  I was able to get my company to continue this offer indefinately, so any military veteran that completes the online memory test will receive a free bottle as a thank you for their service.  We are not trying to make money off of the veteran population, but rather want to offer the memory screen and Prevagen in conjunction to help our wounded warriors!
