Dr. Sudip Bose received a Bronze Star and was recognized as a “CNN Hero” for his role in treating Saddam Hussein following his capture from the spider hole and for serving one of the longest tours of duty for a medical doctor since World War II.
Dr. Bose’s experiences in the military served to catalyze a desire to serve veterans. Still a respected, practicing emergency room physician, he founded The Battle Continues, a nonprofit organization that works to improve the health of veterans–and all Americans.
On Thursday, February 19, 2015 at noon, Dr. Bose will join me for a live discussion about his experiences and his mission to help veterans. Tune in here then to watch the interview live.
More about Dr. Bose:
Dr. Bose saw firsthand how soldiers suffered from combat stress after returning from war. Many soldiers came back only to fight another battle, perhaps harder than they had ever fought before…their own. Many struggled with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI), and devastating physical injuries sustained during the course of their service to our country. Whether veteran or civilian, preserving our health and well-being is the number one battle we must all fight if we want to live the American dream.
Dr. Bose’s mission is to use his knowledge and experience to reach people around the nation through education. Our Board of Directors will allocate donated funds to veterans and their families to help them fight their battles after returning from combat. Donated funds will be used to connect injured veterans with physicians. The motivating force behind www.TheBattleContinues.org is to progress education so that we can improve healthcare on a larger scale and to help patients that even Dr. Bose has not met; to throw a stone into an ocean of people and create a ripple effect for a healthier America.
