Join us for an informative interview with Col (ret) Mike Evans and Major Aaron Foist, both US Army EOD. They share insight on the Brain Blast Injury Prevention Initiative; this initiative involves EOD leadership, EOD Caucus, DOD, Congress and Scientific Researchers. They are collaborating to gain a better understanding of the effects on the brain after blast exposure(s). Their important work is to put policies, procedures and equipment in place to help minimize the short and long term effects of brain blast exposure. Due to the dangerous nature of their job, EOD Technicians are inherently involved in blast exposure.. Learn more about what is being explored about brain health for our warriors.
