Veterans with brain injuries and their families had a few of their questions answered today at a symposium at the VA Hospital.

St. Marys teamed up with the VA Medical Center to bring Roger K. Veach, a certified rehabilitation specialist to the VA. He talked about the problems those with brain injuries commonly have, and the subsequent problems family members face. Veach says that mild brain trauma is the most under diagnosed medical problem.

The Western Slope brain injury and epilepsy support group meets the first Wednesday of each month in the cafeteria at Ratekin Towers from 7 to 9 PM. Bill Queen is the local contact for the group you can reach him by email at
