Emory Healthcare Veterans Program Receives Grant from Blue Angels Foundation | Emory University

the Blue Angels Foundation donated $300,000 to the Emory Healthcare Veterans Program (EHVP) to support efforts to provide comprehensive care and treatment for veterans and post-9/11 service members with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

“The Emory Veterans Program is making great strides in the injured veteran community. We look forward to working together to make a big difference for our country’s service men and women and their families affected by PTSD,” said Mike Campbell, President of the Blue Angels Foundation. The mission of the Blue Angels Foundation is to support injured veterans.

The Emory Healthcare Veterans Program runs an intensive outpatient treatment program for veterans that aims to reduce symptoms of PTSD. The program is a comprehensive two-week treatment regimen that helps veterans re-engage in daily life and promotes physical and mental health and well-being by treating veterans and service members from across the country at no cost to the veteran.

“This generous donation will help us continue our innovative efforts in Veterans’ health care and serve more people at no Veterans’ cost.” Together with the Blue Angels Foundation, we heal the wounds of service,” says Barbara O. Rothbaum, PhD, director of the Emory Healthcare Veterans Program, professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Emory University School of Medicine.

Through the program, patients have access to a wide range of services, from daily individual therapy to family therapy, and various recreational activities to develop coping skills and relationships.
