Advisory Boards

Since the Center's inception its priorities and projects have been reviewed by a Scientific Advisory Board and an Educational Advisory Board who meet with Center leaders annually and as needed. Board members include national experts in PTSD and key officials from VA and non-VA federal departments. While providing valuable input, both boards have consistently found the National Center's performance in research and education outstanding.
