As founder of TheBattleContinues.org and an active member of the Board of Directors of the American Occupational Therapy Association, Dr. Bose is championing efforts to raise awareness and funding for wounded veterans and the families of fallen soldiers, especially with post-traumatic stress disorder.
More than 30,000 U.S. soldiers have suffered injuries during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Many of them will return home to face grueling physical challenges and enormous financial burdens. In honor of the men and women with whom Dr. Bose has served, a portion of his lecture fee is donated to wounded soldiers and their families.
Bose is leading the effort to raise awareness
about Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). According to a 2008 study by the
RAND think tank, one in five of the 1.7 million veterans who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan have suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder.
As an Iraq war veteran, Dr. Bose has witnessed first-hand the devastating impact this disorder can have on soldiers and their families.
He shares his expertise about the "Hidden Wounds of War" with leading hospitals and universities across the United States.
Military surveys show that less than half of soldiers with symptoms of
PTSD actually seek help, mostly for fear of being stigmatized or hurting their careers. Dr. Sudip Bose is dedicated to helping these heroes of war transition back into their lives with as few barriers as possible. Proceeds from all lectures and his
will provide ongoing support to veterans
and families who've paid the ultimate price while protecting our country.
As a board-certified emergency physician and spokesperson for the American College of Emergency Physicians, Dr. Bose's expertise covers not only PTSD, but a full range of medical specialties from cardiology to public health. Click here if you would like to
