The Matthew Gfeller Center is proud to expand its research and clinical programs to include the Transforming Health and Resilience in Veterans (THRIVE) Program. The THRIVE Program is made possible due to a $12.5M pledge made by the Avalon Action Alliance to UNC-Chapel Hill. The THRIVE Program enables Carolina to establish a new clinical outreach program dedicated to treating traumatic brain injuries and related health conditions, promoting overall wellness for veterans.
Duty. Service. Honor.
The THRIVE Program’s mission is to fulfill our duty to serve Veterans and first responders by improving the evaluation and treatment of traumatic brain injuries through clinical practice, research, and education.
We will execute this mission by providing participant-centered interdisciplinary care focused on interconnecting brain and body health to allow Veterans and first responders to better serve themselves, their families, and their communities while they live a healthy, high-quality life. Our goal is to help our Veterans and first responders THRIVE in all aspects of their lives.
