KEYNOTE SPEAKER | MAJOR DIGGS BROWN (ret)
We are pleased to welcome Major Diggs Brown (ret) U.S. Army Special Forces to be our keynote speaker. Serving as a major in the United States Army Special Forces (Green Berets) during Operation Enduring Freedom, Diggs served in Afghanistan and on the African Continent as part of the Global War on Terrorism. Not only did his duties include training the new Afghan Army and conducting operations against the Taliban and al Qeada terrorist organizations, but Diggs also supported the local school by teaching students English and was instrumental in securing secure much-needed school supplies. Join us this evening to hear his compelling and compassionate story that will challenge and inspire you!

WHO WE ARE
The Healing Warriors Program clinic in Fort Collins cares for veterans of all eras: WWII, Korean Conflict and Vietnam era veterans along with individuals who served more recently in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as active duty servicemen and women. Too often our troops leave active duty service and are expected to immediately reintegrate into civilian life without regard to the impact of repetitive deployments, trauma and pain .
The reality is, many of our service members return home suffering from Post Traumatic Stress (PTS), Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) and numerous types of chronic pain. In our integrative care clinic, HWP offers non-narcotic treatment options too rarely provided with standard care. We offer Healing Touch therapy, used in a ground-breaking PTS protocol developed by the Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine and part of a 2 year research study with Camp Pendleton combat marines. Craniosacral therapy with current research underway with Traumatic Brain Injuries and pain management. Acupuncture with research evidence of significant pain and Post Traumatic Stress relief. All therapies provide relief from the depression, anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain all too familiar to veterans. Clients, who each receive three complimentary sessions at the clinic, are encouraged to try the different modalities to see what treatment will be most therapeutic for their unique needs.
