The Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation has provided a gift of $1M to support BUSPH’s VetChange Project, a web intervention for recent combat returnees with PTSD. This program was developed by Dr. David Rosenbloom, a member of our faculty and his team, in collaboration with the Boston VA. VetChange is a self-directed, web-based program to help returnees from combat reduce excessive drinking and PTSD symptoms. Our goal is to make the VetChange program freely available to all veterans returning from combat who want help to better control their drinking and PTSD symptoms.
