The DoD’s Office of Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP), which funds STRONG STAR, has called on “Consumer Reviewers,” or those personally affected by the psychological wounds of war, to help guide its research programs on psychological health and traumatic brain injury. In this video, combat veteran Richard Flores and his mother, Penny Flores, discuss his personal struggle with PTSD and TBI, and how it led them both to serve as consumer reviewers for CDMRP-funded research programs like STRONG STAR.
