Show Notes

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.
