UCLA Health Operation Mend:
Healing the Visible and Invisible Wounds of War
Join us for this inspiring evening as we hear from the UCLA Health Operation Mend team along with veterans and caregivers who have experienced this life-changing program at UCLA. Since 2007, Operation Mend has been providing advanced surgical and medical care for post-9/11-era warriors injured during combat operations or while training for service. Since 2016, Operation Mend has provided life-saving intensive treatment and support for the invisible wounds of war, including post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury and co-occurring anxiety, depression and family relationship challenges. The program, including treatment, travel and lodging, is provided at no cost to veterans and their family members.
RSVP is by invitation only.
