  2. 2. Introductio n • The vice president of HeronTherapeutics in La Jolla, California, Dr. Erol Onel possesses strong clinical experience with a history in the pharmaceutical and urological fields. Erol Onel also contributes to community organizations like theWoundedWarrior Project (WWP), which administers theWarrior Care Network to support military veterans with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). More than 2.4 million men and women have deployed to serve the country since the events of September 11, 2001, and studies indicate that a rising percentage of military veterans return with PTSD or aTBI.These growing numbers make it increasingly difficult for veterans to access timely and effective mental health treatment for invisible wounds such as PTSD andTBIs.
  3. 3. Warrior Care Network • TheWarrior Care Network addresses the issue through a partnership between WWP and four national academic medical centers: UCLA Health, Rush University Medical Center, Massachusetts General Hospital, and Emory Healthcare. The partnership enables the Warrior Care Network to connect veterans with world- class care and focuses on reaching veterans that might otherwise go untreated due to gaps in government care.Through the network, veterans receive referrals to partnering hospitals for evaluation and treatment at no cost. Additionally, the program covers travel expenses for veterans and their family members.
