MEMORANDUM

Posted: December 7, 2018 12:07 PM
From: Representative Harry Readshaw
To: All House members
Subject: Co-sponsorship: Veterans TBI Brain Scan
 
Upon our return, I plan on re-introducing HB1784 (Barbin) from last Session. This bill provides $500,000 for veteran brain scans and $500,000 for necessary equipment to the Department of Military and Veteran Affairs for the purpose of providing current service members and veterans with access to high definition fiber tracking brain scans and supporting ongoing clinical research in this Commonwealth involving traumatic brain injuries and post-traumatic stress. Estimates of TBI and PTS approximate 20% of our fighting force. This technology makes the invisible wounds visible.

Please join me in sponsoring this legislation which will provide an additional means for medical care for veterans and servicemen.

Previous co-sponsors (HB1784): BARBIN, BARRAR, SAINATO, READSHAW, HENNESSEY, BERNSTINE, MURT, SCHWEYER, MILLARD, SOLOMON, HILL-EVANS, PASHINSKI, ROZZI, SCHLOSSBERG, DRISCOLL, D. MILLER, CONKLIN, GILLEN, DEASY and WATSON



Introduced as HB32
