In the News: Reveille Symposium

Thank you to Howard Altman over at the Tampa Tribune, for writing this about our upcoming Reveille Summit.

TAMPA — For more than five years, the Palm Harbor-based Combat Wounded Veteran Challenge has been taking men and women up tall mountains and down under the sea to help them recover and discover.

But on Friday, the organization, created by retired Navy Capt. David Olson, is taking its efforts to the next level. It is holding an all-day symposium on the best way forward for prosthetics and the treatment of post traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury.

The Reveille Symposium, being held at the Renaissance International Plaza Hotel in Tampa, is bringing together some of the top experts in all three fields, says Arlene Gillis, a board member of the Combat Wounded Veteran Challenge and director of the College of Orthotics and Prosthetics at St. Petersburg College.

“We are very excited to bring some of the forward thinkers in these areas to Tampa,” Gillis said.

The goal is to create an atmosphere for examining the best practices in each field, share concepts and discover innovations, all aimed at helping wounded, ill and injured veterans.

“We are coming together to help improve the quality of life of some of our military folks, who deserve the best quality of life possible,” Gillis said.

She added that about 100 people are expected to attend, with an audience that includes veterans and students.

The symposium is open to the public, but registration is required. It kicks off with a breakfast at 8:15 a.m., followed by three 75-minute panels and a wrap-up discussion.
