Navy SEALs To Be Tested Prior To Training, Monitored For Brain Injuries | KPBS

Must Read

The SEALs are working with the Traumatic Brain Injury Clinic at Naval Medical Center San Diego.

The program is part of the Navy’s overall effort to provide regular cognitive screenings and streamlined treatment. In the past, special operators with a concussion might have to make several appointments with different doctors — a particular problem for SEALs who face demanding training and deployment schedules.
